Can do Sil Mencia Garnacha
The vineyards are located around Petin, in the heart of Valdeorras located 50km east of Ourense on the river Sil, with its eastern border being with Castilla y Leon, and the area of Bierzo over the mountains. The vineyards are located on the valley floor, with alluvial soil mixed with clay and limestone, and on the hillsides where poorer, limestone soils are the norm. Here Godello and Mencia are the primary varieties with a touch of Garnacha and Palomino for the entry level Sileno wines, all fermented in stainless steel (Mencia has a strange ability to appear to be oaked when it has never seen a piece of wood) and settled prior to bottling. A simple and effective procedure producing fresh, lifted wines.
