Veronica Ortega, Bierzo Quite


Easy drinking and light-bodied Mencia

Veronica’s father was a bullfighter and ‘dar un quite’ is originally a bullfighting term, now commonly used and meaning ‘to offer a helping hand’. Veronica is based in Valtuille de Abajo, and this wine comes from various parcels of organically tended vines around the village. Averaging 80 years old the vines are planted in the typical sandy, iron-rich clay soils.

This wine has an excellent texture, most attractive mulberry and brambly fruit and floral hints with some liquorice and herbal notes – so delicious and easy to drink.
