One of the upcoming stars from the Valdeorras is winery Val De Sil which focuses strongly on the Galician grape Godello and the red Mencia. The bodega has its vineyards in the valley Sil with its unique slate soils which make the wines of this house unique. The Valderroa Carballo Mencia comes from older Mencia vineyards. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and the malolactic fermentation was carried out in 500 liter French oak barrels after which the wine is allowed to develop further for 10-12 months in used French oak. By the way, Carballo means Oak.

The Carballo is one of the top red wines of the famous winery Val De Sil. It is a medium bodied wine with notes of leather, ripe red fruits, spices and cherries. The palate feels polished, with some heat balanced by good acidity. Close your eyes and taste a good burgundy but at a fraction of the price. We prefer to drink this deliciously elegant Mencia at around 15 degrees.
