Red fruits with fresh herbs. Smooth, fruity & juicy!
Tasting Notes: Bright and clear with a lovely cherry red colour with violet edges. Intense aromas of raspberry, red currant and black plum with floral notes and hints of mint. In the mouth it stands out for its balance, good harmony, packed full of fruits, savoury tannins, smooth with a deep aftertaste and a pleasant finish in the mouth.
Pepe Porter is a premium quality wine from a careful selection of the best bunches of the Mencia red grape. It is a delicious and versatile red that should be in any cellar. The Mencía grape occupies only a small part of the world production and that makes it very unusual.
Mencía does well in Monterrei, the smallest and most southerly DO in Galicia, right on Portugal’s northern border. This gets the best bunches from the harvest, the rest going to blends, selected and fermented in stainless steel with a short maturation period—this is all about accentuating the fruit characters of the grape.
Food Match : Excellent with most meat - red and white, Oriental lightly spiced dishes, mature hard cheeses. Try it chilled in the summer.
