Review wine Viña Costeira Mencía by  Viña Costeira wineries and appellation of origin Valdeorras
Recently released to the market (in April this year) Viña Costeira Mencía is one of the best menus we have tried lately.
Elaborated by a winery specializing in white wines such as Viña Costeira, we must recognize that this turn, and the introduction of a red wine in its range, we consider a success.
With a price slightly higher than white, and around 6-8 euros per bottle, it will be a great companion to the servings of octopus, stew or any other food with which you want to mate.
In our tasting we were struck by the expressive and by its flavor, despite being talking about a wine of price content and that can be bought between 6-8 euros per bottle.
A wine destined to the tapas and to the chateo and to accompany our more classic rations.
The harvest is carried out on slopes of the Sil and Bibei rivers and its elaboration is careful with soft presses and fermentation at 27ºC.
Its flavor is long and very persistent, typical of the grape mencía, but with "something more".
Spicy and fruity aromas round the drink and persistently remain in the mouth.
Slightly different from other mencías, more fruity perhaps and quality.
Although the menu is not a wine for all audiences (in our environment is loved or hated), in this case our recommendation is positive.
It is a new variety in a well-known winery that produces quality wines.
