    Winemaker's Notes:

    Made from 100% Mencia, Gaba do Xil Mencia is grown in the vineyard called La Falcoeira, in the town of Santa Cruz. It's not just the wild energy, the mash-up of stemmy greenness with dark fruit ripeness. You can find that in a great Chambolle. It's more the contrast of floral and meaty scents, as if violets were pressed into chorizo. And the tannins, as black as carbon, integrating with the fruit into a dark-lashed beauty.

    Critical Acclaim:

    You won't find a wine like this outside Galicia. It's not just the wild energy, the mash-up of stemmy greenness with dark fruit ripeness. You can find that in a great Chambolle. It's more the contrast of floral and meaty scents, as if violets were pressed into chorizo. And the tannins, as black as carbon, integrating with the fruit into a dark-lashed beauty.
