Viñedo y elaboración
Opinión de los críticos
The red blend 2018 A Villeira was produced with mostly Mencía and some Garnacha Tintorera, Brancellao, Sousón and Merenzao from a plot on granite soils in the zone of As Ermitas in the more western part of Valdeorras where the soils are granite based. It's 0.4 hectares planted in 1958 on 12 small terraces. There is an old, small winery in the process of being restored, and they plan to ferment this wine there. It fermented in 500-liter oak barrels, where it matured for 12 months. This is a serious red, with the somewhat savage character of the reds from the zone (this is just by the O Diviso vineyard from Telmo Rodríguez), with notes of wild herbs, flowers and berries. It has a medium-bodied palate with the vibrant sensation from 2018, a freshness that comes from the zone and the granite soils too. This should develop nicely in bottle. 1,300 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2020.
