Lousas Parcela Seoane | Envínate

A blend of Mencía and other local grapes from 60 year-old vines planted in broken slate, in a south-west facing parcela located in Amandi, sitting at 400 metres elevation. Grapes are foot-stomped and fermented with whole-clusters in a small open vat. Like the other Lousas wines, it is marked by extreme purity, lifted aromatics and delicious savouriness. It’s a shame there’s little of it, but that makes it all the more special.
