BOCA DO DEMO, CASTRO CANDAZ
APPELLATION: Ribeira Sacra
VARIETY/BLEND: 100% Mencia
Castro Candaz A Boca do Demo shows an austere granite minerality and delicate tannins, with aromas of violets, red fruits of the forest, and blood orange peel. Old vines give the wine a Burgundy character, with an unusual fineness and an infinite range of nuances. Every part of the mouth is seduced by the freshness of this fine wine, while hints of flint fill the nose. Femininity and spices give it a rounded and subtle finish with a long and extremely elegant aftertaste.
Castro Candaz is the small, common project of Raul Perez, Spain top oenologist, and Rodri Mendez (Forjas del Salnés, in Rias Baixas).They want to produce lighter wines (not more than 13° of alcohol) by harvesting sooner. Cuvées for those who like elegant Burgundy-style wines.
