2017 Envinate Ribeira Sacra - Camino Novo
Regular price $50.00
Parcela Camiño Novo: Camiño Novo, or “new road”, is a small single parcel located in the prime Amandi subzone of Ribeira Sacra. This parcel faces south-east, forming a small amphitheater at 430 meters elevation. The vines are 70 years old and is made up of 90% Mencía and 10% Garnacha Tintorera. According to Alfonso Torrente, a native to the area, Camiño Novo is a significantly cooler site for the area. This parcel yields wines that are tight, ethereal, very focused, with great mineral depth, all the while maintaining the exotic floral, herbal, and spice aromatics that make Mencía-based wines so intriguing. The wine was made with 100% whole grape clusters and raised for 11 months in a mix of used 300 and 400 liter barrels. Stored well, we think this wine has many years ahead of it.
