Small Batch Wines | 2014 'Chica' Mencia Rose
The Vino Geek, 8/10, August 2014
I'm slowly working my way through the samples sent to me from Oliver's winemaker Corrina Wright but am so glad I tucked into this one now. My first crack at Mencia and while it is in a Rose form, I like it!
From what I can gather, a variety that is often made in a lighter style, this is an awesome dry style of Rose, perfect for those red wine drinkers that want something a little lighter and for those white wine drinkers that want a red.
On the nose this shows great floral notes and strawberry fruit. The palate continues the sweet strawberries through, joined by a little earthiness. A really nice acidity to it that is well balanced by the slightly dry finish just making your mouth want more!
One to certainly keep an eye on and if you want to impress at that Saturday BBQ this'll be one to get your hands on.
