Tasting Note:

Finca El Curvado is produced from five plots of the same wider single vineyard, blending 45 to 70 year old vines. Mencia based but in practice a natural field blend which includes up to 20% of other varieties such as Alicante Bouschet and Bastardo, with some local white grape varieties too. Violet-scented with red plums, strawberry leaf and dark cherry on the palate. A herbal and subtle spiciness adds complexity. 2017 is the product of a warmer vintage and, as such, it is already attractive and easy to drink. Fermented with 100% whole bunches and aged in neutral 500L barrels. A great introduction to the schist-dominated slopes of La Chantada, a cooler sub-zone of Ribeira Sacra.
