2020 Nanclares y Prieto 'O Son das Pisadas' Mencia, Galicia, Spain
100% Mencía from a single parcel (‘Eira Padín’) of 40-year-old vines in the town of Castrelo. The vines are trained in the espaldera method and planted on rich sandy-loam soils over granitic bedrock. The grapes were harvested by hand, sorted, and crushed by foot, then macerated on their skins and stems and fermented for 21 days before pressing into a used 300L French oak barrel. There, the wine rested on its lees for 11 months, with batonnage for the first month. Bottled without fining or filtering and rested in bottle for 21 months before release.
