Tasting Notes

Finca Losada is a modern winery, in the Bierzo (pronounced bee-er-tho) region, featuring exclusively Mencia (pronounced men-thee-a) wines from old plantings. Located near the village of Pieros on the famous Camino de Santiago de Compostela.

Losada's vineyards are a series of small parcels of traditionally bush-trained vines planted in slate and clay soils. Minimum intervention is followed out in the vineyards, partly in respect to the traditions, but mainly out of respect to the environment, the workers, and the people who enjoy their wines. No chemical herbicides or pesticides are used.

The Jesus Manzanares designed winery uses gravity to move wine through the production process rather than pumps. The design also incorporates features of the environment for both heat/cooling and light, including locating the ageing cellar, production area, and bottling line underground. Solar panels generate power for much of the production.

Winemaker Amancio Fernandez shares responsibility for the development of the Bierzo region when he worked at Dominio de Tares until joining Finca Losada in 2005.

Mencia (pronounced men-thee-a) is indigenous to the Bierzo region of northwest Spain, and is genetically identical to Portugal’s Jaen du Dão grape.

The grapes (100% Mencia) for this wine are from 40-80 year old vines from a selection of independently-owned plots, found close to the winery, at 480-600m amsl. – an altitude suitable for optimum ripening of grapes. Alcoholic fermentation - using indigenous yeast - is in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks, with regular pumpovers, while malolactic fermentation occurs in barrel. Aged 12 months in French oak barrels; second- and third-passage – Vosges and Allier – of different sizes (228litre, 300litre, and 500litre.) Fining with natural mineral- and vegetable-based agents and bottled unfiltered. 14% alc./vol.

Our Tasting Note: Deep/bright, ruby/cherry colour. Aromas and flavours of red fruits - plum, raspberry, and cherry - with notes of vanilla spice, cocoa, violets, and liquorice. Full, with fine/round tannins, balanced acidity, and an elegant/silky finish.

Menu Matches: Grilled and roasted meat dishes (lamb), rice dishes, and earthier vegetarian options.
