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

Galicia, in northern Spain, was once a prosperous and highly popular wine producing region. Despite the strong influence and often bad weather brought by the Atlantic Ocean, the vintners of Galicia knew how to make the most of the grape varietals which thrived in their vineyards, and were renowned for producing excellent, characterful wines full of flavor and beautiful aromatic qualities. However, the economic collapse which occurred in Galicia in the 19th century all but destroyed the region's wine industry and reputation, and it looked as though the region would never recover. Thankfully for lovers of Spanish wines, plenty of money and effort was spent in rebuilding the Galician wine industry over the past few decades, and today, more and more wineries are once again making their distinctive single variety and blended white and red wines, and finding new fans across the globe.

Country: Spain

From the deep and intense Rioja wines, or the dry and refreshing Ruedas, from Tempranillos to Verdejos, the range and quality of Spanish wines is always going to impress and fascinate. With several thousand years of traditions and expertise leading the way, Spanish wineries are currently producing some of the most flavorful and interesting wines to come out of Europe, striving to overcome the reputation problems the country suffered in the mid to late twentieth century. Despite being one of the largest producers of wine in the world, with billions of bottles being filled each year, Spanish wine producers are more interested in quality over quantity than ever before. The results of this are some truly world class wines rivaling even the finest produce of France in regards to balance, character and flavor, gaining new fans and enthusiasts every day.
