Producer Note
Winemaker Xosé Lois Sebio has produced this stunning eponymous collection of
wines as a result of a personal quest: to find wines with unique personality from more
risky processing zones, and with a very marked identity. This original and quirky
range is made from high quality grapes in areas which are often neglected or simply
different: vineyards that are difficult to farm due to the high costs of conventional
viticulture. Away from fashions and conventions, the sole intention is to respect and
express the soil, variety and area; producing wines with soul and personality. The
wines are vinified with minimal intervention and low sulphur. These are collectable
wines for lovers of the authentic and different.
Vintage
2015 was an almost perfect vintage. A cold winter, mild spring and a summer with
abundant sunshine and little rainfall, resulted in grapes with optimum phenological
maturity. The balance between the maturity and freshness found in the grapes was
impeccable. The vines were harvested in perfect health and the resulting wines are
capable of great ageing.
Vineyard
The grapes come from a single vineyard ‘Viñas O Val’ in the DO Bierzo, in the north
western Spanish province of Castilla León. Low yielding 60 year old vines are grown
in clay soils with 'Coios', a Spanish term for boulders, which gave this wine its name.
These old vines have deep root systems which nourish the vines imparting complex
flavours in the resulting wine. Planted at a density of 4,000 vines per hectare, the
vines are grown at an altitude of 550 to 590 metres above sea level. The cool nights
extends the ripening period, allowing the grapes to develop rich varietal
characteristics while retaining balancing acidity. The grapes are manually harvested
when they have reached optimum maturity.
Winemaking
Vinification took place in open tanks of 1,500 litres. A cold soak lasted one week,
prior to fermentation at low temperatures. The wine was gently pressed in a manual
screw press. Only the lots with the sweetest, ripest tannins and fruit forward flavours
were extracted. The wine started malolactic fermentation in tank, which was
completed in 600 litre barrels. The blend was aged for 14 months in 300 and 600 litre
barrels of third fill.
Tasting Note
A vibrant Mencia, with aromatic notes of lilac, violet, fresh red fruits interlaced with
mineral overtones. Harmoniously balanced, with restrained tannins and a textured
palate, full of fleshy red fruits and a savoury character on the long, intense finish.
Serving Suggestion
Lamb cutlets with seasoned vegetables, or steak au poivre.
