Our winemaker, Ryan, is definitely partial to unique Spanish wine varietals. He discovered Albariño while living in northwestern Spain in 1995 and fell in love with it. So it is no surprise that when he discovered another relatively unknown yet gripping and delicious grape varietal, also from northwestern Spain, he wanted to audition it for the wine club. The name of the grape is Mencía. It is primarily grown in a region of Spain called Bierzo, which lies just north of Portugal’s northern border with Spain. This is a cool growing region where farming can be a challenge. But the wild terrain and perfect soil composition make up for the lack of warmth typical of other parts of Spain. Organic farming, low vineyard yields, and modern winemaking techniques practiced by Losada Vinos de Finca puts the emphasis on producing quality, family crafted wines rather than mass quantity “factory” wines. Winemaker Amancio Fernández has created a vintage resplendent in pure seductive fruit flavors and delicate spice tones, wrapped in supple tannins, with a polished sophisticated texture. We suggest affording the 2013 El Pájaro Rojo at least 20 minutes of aeration before serving at cool room temperature (60°- 65° F)
