Grape Varieties Tinta Mencia (Jaen)
700m+ vineyards just outside the Douro, organic Mencia (the same as in Bierzo, but here traditionally called Jaen) on granite soil, with a high proportion of silex (quartz). This access to quartz was almost certainly what made the region so popular with the Paleolithic hunter-gatherers who made their home here and left behind the rock art for which UNESCO has made the area a World Heritage site. Unoaked.
A minerally red, with fresh, crunchy hedgerow fruits.
