From Bodegas Rectoral de Amandi, Matilda Nieves 2020 is a vibrant red wine blend of 85% Mencia, 8% Garnacha and 7% Sousón with grapes sourced from the incredibly steep slopes of Ribeira Sacra. Fragrant with ripe dark plum, blackberry, mulberry and blueberry aromas, the wine is silky and mouth-filling with dark berry and ripe plum flavours fresh, vibrant and silky on the palate. Tannins are velvety.

Mencia food pairings: veal cutlets, lamb lollipops, Portobello mushroom burgers.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
