Professional Wine Reviews for Avanthia Mencia Rose 2014

Rated 90 by Robert Parker
Another killer effort and outstanding wine is the 2014 Rosé, made from 100% of the indigenous red grape Mencia. The wine is aged sur lie in large-format French oak for three months and then bottled. This is a beautiful Rosé, and one of the best Rosés I tasted during the warm summer months on the East Coast. After some skin contact to get a rather deep, vibrant, fluorescent pink color, the wine is dry and has fragrant, floral aromatics with strawberry and cherry. Lively, zesty, with medium body and surprising intensity, this is a beauty and well-crafted. Drink now.

Additional Information on Avanthia Mencia Rose 2014

Winery: Avanthia

Region: Galicia

Spain is one of Europe's most ideal wine producing countries, with a wide range of terroirs and ideal climatic conditions for cultivating a fantastic variety of grapevines. However, the region of Galicia suffered a dramatic fall from grace in the 19th century, due to economic downturns which led to vineyards being left untended, and wineries derelict. This was a tragic loss to the wine world, as Galicia had once been an important center for Spanish wine, and one which had considerable influence and popularity due to its excellent range of white and red blended wines. However, the 20th century saw Galician wine making undergo a rebirth, and today, thanks to years of hard work and dedication, Galician wines are back on the shelves, and attracting a lot of attention thanks to their stunning flavors and careful, balanced blends of native fine grape varietals.

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
