Bodegas y Vinedos Mengoba Brezo Blanco Bierzo, Spain 2016 (750ml)
Grégory Pérez freely admits that you've got to have a few loose screws to grow all your grapes in the highest and rockiest sites in Bierzo. Crazy as the mission may seem, his efforts have paid off big time.
Mengoba's entry white Brezo is a fabulous blend of 85% Godello and 15% Doña Blanca, sourced from a variety of Bierzo's highland terroirs
It's a mouth-watering, juicy yet pulpy wine with preserved lemon, quinine and crunchy pear fruit and a wonderfully tonic finish. Textural yet thirst-quenching with savoury complexity on the driven finish--this is a joy to drink.
