Verónica Ortega's ROC is a red wine from two very old plots of Mencía, located in Valtuille de Abajo. The vines are grown on clay-sandy soils with high sand content, adding a very elegant aromatic profile to the Mencía, and a certain precision in the mouth.
The wine is made using 100% of the bunches with their stems and spontaneously fermented in a 5000-litre open wooden vat. Ageing occurs in 228-litre French oak barrels of second and third use.
Here's a taste of what you can expect from this wine:
- Aromas & Palate: Roc is a serious Mencia red wine, with a marked personality. It is very elegant and mineral, combining floral notes, red fruits and liquorice on the nose and a long journey in the mouth.
- Pairing: Pair this wine with roasted red meat, rice dishes with meat, cured meat and grilled red meat.
