wine-menciaribeirasacraRecently became acquainted with wines from northwestern Spain, made with the Mencia grape. The combination of grape and place in this case leads to righteous wines that make a person feel like they’ve experienced goodness. Haven’t had a bad one yet. Enjoyed “Vel’uveyra” with Thai chicken and pumpkin — made with ginger and coconut milk. The Mencia was in full-voice.
