Veronica Ortega 'Quite' Mencia
notes from the importer:
When Veronica Ortega settled in Bierzo, she acquired several plots of old-vine Mencia near the village of Valtuille de Abrajo on sandy and clay soils. After a few vintages of just making a single wine from these vines, ROC, Veronica began to discern that the sandier plots were more expressly and delicately floral and benefited from a shorter time in barrel. From this realization, Quite was born in 2012. Since this first vintage, Veronica has continued to seek ways to emphasize the innate qualities of Quite – she now destems the fruit entirely, ferments in tank, has shortened the maceration, and employs 800L amphorae for aging a portion of the wine.
