FAQs Mencia red wine

Yes, in recent years, winemakers have been using older vines of the Mencia grape to get a fuller, thicker wine. Newer vines were producing slightly more diluted versions of this wine. To get a deeper, richer flavor, closer to the flavor the wine originally had when it was discovered, winemakers have been working to cultivate older vines in their original hillside locations. Since the 1990s, this particular variety of wine has grown in popularity both locally and worldwide.

Mencia grapes produce a very dry wine that does not have a sweet flavor. It has low to moderate acidity and tannin levels. Mencia grapes must be harvested quickly once ripened as they quickly lose their acidity, which will affect the acidic balance of the finished product. Generally, it is a balanced, medium-bodied wine with a dry yet fruity aftertaste.

Mencia red wine pairs perfectly with spicy meat dishes like Cajun-style chicken or Ibérico pork sirloin. Grilled meats with flavorful seasonings blend seamlessly with this aromatic red wine. Nuts, pesto, and even roast duck are also known to pair well with this particular wine. Mencia should be paired with flavorful foods to enhance all the flavors, but nothing that will overpower it completely. Pair with herbs and spices rather than aged cheeses and overly spicy dishes.
