Weinregion Bierzo:
Bierzo liegt in der Region Leon und grenzt an Portugal. Je nach Höhenlage weist die Region sehr unterschiedliche Böden auf, auf denen vor allem Rotweine wunderbar gedeihen. Die dominierende und für das Bierzo typische Rebsorte ist Mencia, zudem werden Garnacha, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon und Syrah mit der Mencia Traube verschnitten. Die Weißweine, die insgesamt keine besonders große Rolle spielen, werden aus Godello, Dona Blanca, Malvasia, und Palomino gekeltert.

Petalos 2018 Bierzo D.O. 100% Mencia Alvaro Palacios

At the end of the day. if I really have to recommend a wine from this collection. the one I’d buy for my cellar. it will be the 2011 Petalos del Bierzo. It is 95% Mencia mixed in the field with 3% of white grapes and the rest Alicante Bouschet and other reds. fermented after de-stemming in open wood and inox vats and aged ten months in French barrels. of which 20% are new. Eighty percent of the grapes are grown on slate in the Corullon vineyards. with different altitudes and orientations. and the remaining 20% come from clay soils from the valley. It all adds to the complexity of the wine. The wine is very aromatic and flowery (violets). almost heady. with clear notes of blueberries and licorice. The oak is perfectly integrated. almost imperceptible. save for a touch of spices and a lactic hint denoting a very young wine. It has a medium body. with a thick silky texture. is very tasty. with some acidic strawberry flavors. This is one of my go-to wines at restaurant lists. as it offers very good value for money and is widely available in Spain (and elsewhere. I hope!). as 320.000 bottles were produced. This could very well be the best Petalos produced to date. Drink now through 2019.
