Pazo de Monterrey Mencia
This product is currently sold out.
The Val de Monterrei is an area of unique microclimates in south-east Galicia. It is the only Galician region that lies in the basin of the river Duero. The river Támega, a well-known tributary of the Duero, cuts through the region from north to south, moulding its slate and granitic landscape.
The Pazo de Monterrey wine labels show one of the typical carnival costumes from Verin in Monterrei - that of the 'Cigarrón'. Here, close to the Portuguese border, these masked figures are a key, and unique feature of the carnival, which takes place in the run-up to Easter.
Pazo de Monterrey Mencia wine is delicately fragrant with layers of wild flowers and ripe red berries, backed by hints of spice from its brief time in French oak. A typically subtle and elegant style of Mencia. Brilliant with traditional Galician empanadas!
