Notes

The Calderera Mencia is a new joint venture that has come about from the deep friendship between Dirk Niepoort and Raul Perez. Dirk Niepoort produces one wine in Bierzo before traveling to Raul Perez where he produces the Ultreia in Douro. The two of them then combine the vintages together in the Godello castle in Valtuille de Abajo, León to make the unique Calderera Mencia. The result, a very fresh wine with a complex and aristocratic cut.

The Calderera Mencia is sourced from vineyards on sandy soils and makes use of the Mencia grape which is sourced from areas made up of slate. The Calderera Mencia is produced in such a way as to preserve the fruit and ensure that no excessive contribution is added.
