Verdes Matas Mencia

Verdes Matas Mencia

If you happen to be in Brighton….try Verdes Matas Mencia at Butlers Wine Cellar!

Our wine for the weekend is this beauty from a tiny producer in the Ribeira Sacra region of Spain. Made organically from the Mencia grape from their own tiny vineyards which are over 60 years old. The grapes are hand picked and then sorted by hand so only the very best fruit is used. It’s a very expressive and balanced wine, a rustic edge to start but it opens up quickly in the glass or would benefit from decanting. A very elegant wine full of blueberry and pomegranate aromas with more blackberry fruit and mineral notes to taste. The perfect companion to octopus or any fish stew, meaty fish or bbq prawns. I think it would also be great with pork, or duck. It is also lovely slightly chilled. This is open to try before you buy in both shops today and is discounted by 10%. Winner winner chicken dinner. @robtheboozer @magda.gawrych @winesfromspain @fourthandchurch #redwine #winefortheweekend #organic #minimalintervention #oldvines #mencia #verdesmatas #ribeirasacra #galicia #spain #lugo #rustic #tinyproducers #discounted #trybeforeyoubuy #gettasting #bbqwine #octopus #wineandseafood #wineandfish #winetime #summerwine #chilledredwine #independentretailer #winemerchant #brightonindependent #brighton
