2018 Fento Tinto - Rias Baixas, Spain (750ml)
|Availability:||In stock (7)|
In a region dominated by Albarino, Fento connected with a coterie of small local growers who farm some of the best and rarest local varietals to craft this unique, red blend of 69% Sousón, 13% Mencía, 9% Espadeiro 8% Pedral and 1% ‘other varietals’. Many of the vineyards host spontaneous cover crops which result in more concentrated grapes, improve the soil's structure and avoid erosion. The harvest is done by hand with a very strict sorting. Amarena cherry and fresh blackberry with green and white pepper notes dominate the palate, then gently subside to reveal firm, dry tannins and minerality on the finish. Pairs perfectly with Iberico pork chops with rosemary, thyme and roasted turnips.
