Madai 'Origen' Mencía 2017

D.O. Bierzo, Cacabelos, Castilla y León

Madai personifies everything we admire about small, generational Spanish producers. Under the care of brothers Gonzalo and Daniel Amigo, this tiny estate of less than 7 acres still boasts vines from the original Mencía and Godello plots, now over one hundred years old. Walking the vineyards is the quintessential old world experience; the head-trained vines, on steep granite slopes, are dry-farmed and hand tended without sprays. Dedicated entirely to Mencía and Godello, the interspersed plantings yield a production of only a few thousand cases.

Tasting Notes:

The intense, nearly opaque color is unmistakably Mencía and speaks to the exotic nose and deep mix of sweet and savory notes of toffee and licorice. The concentration of flavor is balanced by high-acid, floral and earth elements.

Pair it With:

Due to its acidity and structure, you’ll want to lean towards richer white meats like turkey and pork, or pepper meats like pastrami to balance intensities.
