2015 Jorge Vega Garcia "Puerta del Viento" BierzoZev Rovine
Jorge Vega has been working in Bierzo for his whole life but it wasn’t until 2009 that him and his wife Rosana decided to do their own thing, their own way, recovering their family’s 80 year old vineyard in Pieros at 550m of altitude on alluvial sand and their 60 year old vineyard in Cobrana even higher at 800m on slate. The grapes are foot stomped and partially fermented in oak barrels (and partially in stainless) with native yeasts. No clarification bottled without filtering and without added sulphites. A fuller bodied and more rustic expression of Mencia.
