The wine

Clusters of grapes can be separated into two parts: the shoulders and the tips. The latter are formed on the lower halves of the clusters, where the freshest grapes are concentrated. On the shoulders, the upper part, are the riper grapes which produce this magnificent Mencía red. Succulent fruit and a mineral character are its distinctive traits.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker and Suckling

The showy and intoxicating 2019 Hombros is floral and perfumed, heady and ripe at 14.5% alcohol, in a decadent style that is still well-oaked but less than in the past. The destemmed but uncrushed grapes fermented in 5,000-liter oak vats with indigenous yeasts, and the wine matured in 225- and 500-liter oak barrels, some of them new, for 12 months. It has ripe notes of dark berries, soy sauce and earth. The palate is full-bodied, with plenty of tannins. It finishes with some oak flavors. 15,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2021.

Ripe plums, orange zest, baking spices, dried flowers and black olives on the nose. It’s full-bodied with silky tannins and fresh acidity. Round, juicy and caressing. Plenty of ripe fruit, flowers and sweet spices with mocha after-notes. Drink now or hold.

The winery

Bodega Casar de Burbia

Bodega Casar de Burbia

Casar de Burbia is a purely family-owned winery that was founded by Nemesio Fernández Bruña, the first generation of a saga of vine growers and vine-growers, as they themselves like to call themselves, which has survived to this day. That boy who, back in the 1940s, was entrusted with cleaning the clay vats as he was the only one who fit through the narrow mouths, decided in 1989 to make his dream come true and began to acquire old vineyards in El Bierzo. Obsessed with altitude...
