Mencal wine is a dry white wine made from a blend of Muscat, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Torrontés grapes, which, by taking advantage of the climatic and climatic diversity, makes it possible to take advantage of the highest quality cultivation of a large number of varieties.
For the Pago de Almaraes winery is the comparison in the elaboration of your wine with the implementation of a recipe by a chef who still employs the same ingredients, the final product of the recipe can vary from year to year depending on the quality of the grapes. Emilio, commercial director of the winery, could not explain it better than with this phrase: "not every year it rains the same or does the same heat".
In addition to a daring coupage, this wine is subjected to a delicate production process that includes the cold maceration, consisting of introducing carbonic snow during the fermentation of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc for the maximum extraction of aromas, making a more balanced wine avoiding the Dominance of the Muscatel grape.
Mencal is the most awarded wine of the winery, among others by the Challenge International Du Vin or Mundus Vini, hence the highest quality grapes go exclusively to its production.
You can tell this while serving: The name Mencal comes from a hill near the cellar where the first remains of Phoenician and Roman amphorae were found for the production of wine in the province of Granada, more specifically, leaving a clear trace of the relation of wine with the area. Mencal comes from Arab heritage and means burial place.
