Verónica Ortega's VO or "Version Original" uses grapes from two very old plots of Mencía, located in Valtuille de Abajo. The sandy soils add a very elegant aromatic profile to the Mencía. The grapes come from the lowest part of the plot of Verónica's ROC wine, in El Couso and La Rata, with somewhat deeper soils.
This red wine has been aged for 14 months in a conical wooden tank with a capacity of 2500 litres.
Here's a taste of what you can expect from this wine:
- Aromas & Palate: It has a sophisticated and marked personality, with a seductive floral nose and a long journey on the palate, framed by an attractive and fresh tension.
- Pairing: Pair with roasts, grilled lamb, stews, cold cuts and cheese.
