Telmo Rodriguez Gaba Do Xil Mencia 2019

Gaba do Xil Mencía 2019 is a fantastic expression of inland Atlantic Mencía . An always fresh and expressive wine, whose selected grapes come from the municipalities located further east of the DO such as Santa Cruz, Las Ermitas and especially Larouco. Made 100% with Mencía from vineyards located between 400 and 500 meters above sea level. Matured in stainless steel tanks for 12 months .

"After devastating frost in 2017 and killer mildew in 2018, the vintage for the red 2019 Gaba do Xil Tinto from Valdeorras was healthier and the crop good, save for some hail in specific vineyards during the summer. It was a ripe, healthy and balanced year.This is a young, unoaked Mencía with 13.44% alcohol that fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel, where it matured for 12 months before bottling.It's intensely aromatic and expressive, varietal and with the wild rusticity of the zone.The palate is Medium-bodied, with very fine tannins and a soft mouthfeel. 96,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2020."
