De Mena - L’indomptable (2019)
Grape Variety: Syrah
As with all of the De Mena wines the key here is fresh- ness. Holding typical to the varietal the wine displays notes of dark fruits, olives, cured meats, and spices, but it is the great acidity and up- lifted notes of this wine that truly make it stand out in the world of Syrah.
About the Winemaker:
De Mena [de MƸnƏ] is a Catalan term that means "by nature", indeed it is by nature that Sébastien Agelet crafts the beautiful wines of Domaine De Mena. Grape growing has a long tradition in Sébastien’s family, his Great Grandfather, Grandfather, and Father have all worked the rugged vineyards around Paziols in the heart of the Pyrenees Mountains. It is with this family tradition in mind, along with a desire to create a legacy of his own that Sébastien decided to pull his family vineyards out of the local co-op and follow his own path, the path of nature, and thus De Mena was born.
Now only a couple of vintages in De Mena is creating some of the most exciting and talked about natural wines in all of France.
