Paco & Lola is a young, modern winery committed to a fresh way of making and experiencing wine. Known for its sophisticated yet fun image, Paco & Lola makes waves with what's inside the bottle, too.  By being true to their philosophy and drive for quality, the winery has established itself as one of the most recognized wineries within the appellation Rías Baixas in northern Spain.

Paco & Lola 'Paco' red here is a young wine born on the banks of the Sil river in the Valdeorras DO of Rias Baixas, Galicia. It is full of fruits and flowers and perfectly represents the Mencía grape.  For a long time these medium-sized red grapes were thought to have been related to Cabernet Franc – but DNA profiling has proven this not to be true.  In fact it appears to be one of Spain's native varieties, although possibly introduced by the Romans. It can be locally known by other names: Loureiro Tinto, Negra, Negro, Tinto Mollar. It is also identical to Portugal’s grape Jaen.

Winemaking info: Temperature controlled fermentation with the grape skins in stainless steel tanks, with pre-fermentation maceration for color extraction during the first week at 6ºC.  Food pairing: Perfect with fish, meats and cheeses.  Appearance: Intense cherry color, medium to high core with a violet border. Nose: Intense aromas expressing red fruits, forest fruit jam, floral notes and a balsamic finish. Palate: The palate is elegant, fresh and fruity, with a balsamic and mineral finish. There is a good balance of alcohol and acidity.

This was such a lovely surprise. Full of bright cherries, dark exotic aromas and fleshy red fruits, this Mencía will please a broader range of palates than this Spanish grape variety typically would. Elegant and expressive with a balsamic and mineral finish, we also just love that it has a nice, fresh, low 12.5% alcohol.
