Type: Red Wine
Grape: Garnacha Tintorera/Mencia
Lentura hails from the far eastern end of the Galician Massif, in Bierzo. It is driven by vibrant natural tension and freshness, red and black fruits, pointed mineral textures, and medium to low-weight alcohol in comparison to most of the wines made in this region; alcohol and power is easy to achieve in Bierzo, it’s finding balanced elegance that presents the greater challenge.
This wine is rendered from vines with an average age of seventy years and comes from both the valley floor and high up on the slate hillside. In the cellar it is fermented with 20% whole bunches for five to seven days, followed by aging in an equal balance of stainless steel and old, 300-liter barrels.
Medium-bodied and deeply textured, this wine is earthy and mineral-driven, with red fruit and a saline edge.
