The Spanish wine region of El Bierzo lies in the country’s northwest, just to the east of Galicia. It’s becoming well-known for its red wines made from the favored local grape variety called Mencía (“men-SEE-ah”, or “men-THEE-ah” in Castilian Spanish). The grape is also grown in central Portugal (where it’s called Jaen), but ampelographers now believe it originated in Bierzo or a nearby part of Spain. It’s not a particularly productive grapevine, but it is valued anyway for the aromatic quality, color and structure it imparts to its wines. [It’s also planted in nearby Galicia, and there are about 22,000 acres planted with Mencía now in all of Spain.] This wine marks the first we’ve seen of a pink or rosado wine made from that grape in the US. This wine appeals first to the nose, where you’ll find pure strawberry/raspberry scents. It follows up on the palate: you’ll find a really crisp, light and totally dry taste. It finishes with an attractive mineral note that persists a while. Try this with shrimp, oysters, salads, and even Cajun dishes like jambalaya and gumbos.
