Bodegas y Viñedos Raúl Pérez Bierzo Tinto ‘Valdecañada’ 2018


A blend of mostly Mencía with smaller amounts of Bastardo (Trousseau) and Garnacha Tintorera (Alicante Bouschet) • sourced from eight different parcels averaging about 700m ASL on schist and slate•  fermented spontaneously in neutral open-top troncoconic vat with 100% whole bunches • six months of post-fermentation maceration • racked to neutral 225L French barriques for about a year of elevage including flor development • bottled without fining or filtration
WA:95 “The 2018 Valdecañada has lots of iron and blood, rusty nail and iodine. It's earthy, stony and austere—very much with the profile from the soils and the zone that I've seen very clear in the wines from Michelini i Mufatto in my last tasting. It's austere and it's going to require more time. The wines are nuanced and have an elegant profile, with moderate alcohol (all between 11.5% and 12%). It has everything except fruit. Give it time. 1,000 bottles produced.” Luis Gutiérrez
