In recent years grapes like Mencia have helped put a spotlight on Spanish viticulture. Calling the plains of Northwest Spain home, this grape is heavily planted in the Bierzo region of Castilla y Leon. Noted for its lighter red fruit flavours, subtle earthiness and occasional vegetal notes, this wine is often compared to varietals like Cabernet Franc.
