Monterrei Red Blend 2018

Blend of Mencia, caiño and bastardo (aka merenzao or trousseau) from biodynamically farmed vineyards in Mandin (Monterrei, Galicia’s smallest and least known appellation). Whole-cluster fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Dark ruby color. Quite pleasant, slightly rustic nose with aromas of dark fruit, some herbal (eucalyptus?) and earthy notes. Fresh, quite dry on the palate, some cherry flavors, high acidity — 4 months ago

Trousseau 2018

I was not that familiar with this varietal and so thought I would wiki for all interested: “Trousseau or Trousseau Noir, also known as Bastardo and Merenzao, is an old variety of red wine grape originating in eastern France. It is grown in small amounts in many parts of Western Europe; the largest plantations are today found in Portugal, where most famously it is used in port wine. It makes deep cherry red wines with high alcohol and high, sour candy acidity, and flavours of red berry fruits, often complemented - depending on production - by a jerky nose and an organic, mossy minerality.” — 10 months ago

Casa Aurora

Poula Vino de Pueblo Red Blend 2015

2015. Wow! What a great, classic and rustic wine. This is made with a blend of 60% red grapes including some of my favorites from Galicia - Granacha Tintorera (aka Alicante Bouchet), Mencia and Trousseau (they call it Portuguesa, but also known as Merenzao and Bastardo) - plus 40% white grapes including Palomino, Godello, and others. Made in stone lagares and amphora (Roman empire style clay pots). No note of wood, although some of their wines are later aged in large old oak bote. Great minerality, freshness of fruit, and both floral notes on the nose from the white varietals and tannins on the palate from the red varietals. Served lightly chilled but could benefit from a little more. — 3 years ago
