Oliver's Taranga Mencia 2019

Oliver's Taranga produce Mencia two ways - a Rosé and this table wine. This is wonderfully expressive and screams pleasure factor - Corrina Wright's best Mencia release to date.

This 2019 is the third release. Violets, blue fruits and a lick of dark cherries early. A sneaky touch of pomegranate hides sneakily behind black earth and delicate spices. Quite savoury through the mouth, it dries out gradually, dragging you all the way to happiness. Tannins are fine and appeared carefully feathered through the mouth. Those spices just hum and linger. Drink on its own but it is a dangerous proposition with food as it would partner Mediterranean food with ease.

Drink now to three years.
