Mission Tinto Uno 2016
From the Ribeira Sacra region of Northwest Spain. The region is notoriously hard to cultivate, but it has amazing geography and soils and can produce fantastic, elegant, characterful wines. Zak Elfman is an American fell in love with the wines of Ribeira Sacra and decided that his life's mission is to make the finest wine he can possibly make from these forgotten river canyons. Hence the name of his wines.
This is mencia with 20% old vine garnacha. Lots of perfumed violets and crunchy red cherry fruit. Expressive and elegant with lovely bright acidity.
ABV : 12,5%
