Overview

As Xaras is 100% Mencia from the villages of Chandoiro and Larouco in the Val do Bibei. Made in the same manner as Cortezada, their 100% Mencia from the Val do Sil, these two wines showcase the difference between these distinctly different river valleys. Those looking for a more fruit-driven expression might be inclined to Cortezada, while those searching for minerality and freshness might pick As Xaras. But who are we to decide? Maybe try them both for yourself.
