Algueira Merenzao 2014

Product code: 11ALG50B2014

Extremely perfumed wine with an intoxicating bouquet of dry roses, violets and water lilies, wild red berries, pomegranate and watermelon. The palate shows tremendous inner power with a shaft of clean, searing acidity that makes you salivate and ends in a salty, mineral aftertaste.

Product guide note

This red wine is made from a grape variety indigenous to Spain called Merenzao. It has flavours of juicy red fruit, a smooth mouth feel and some mineral flavours too.

Production information

Producer: Adega Algueira

Adega Algueira is responsible for producing some of the most interesting and esoteric wines this side of the equator. It’s interesting to think that the Old World is still capable of throwing up a few surprises using native grape varieties. To say we are excited to import its wines is a bit of an understatement; there are very few producers right now on the same level.

Production note

Treaded by feet followed by barrel fermentation with the stems. There is then a short post-fermentative maceration, malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels during the ageing (less than a year).
