The very young and primary 2019 Castro Ventosa (pink label) is a wine designed to be enjoyed young and fresh, perfect for the by-the-glass market. It is attractive and drinkable, but comparing it with the 2018 showed that these young, unoaked Mencías are even better the second and third (sometimes more!) year after the harvest. This is juicy, clean, varietal and tasty. 50,000 bottles produced. There are five bottlings of this wine.
