February 2019 in the Irish Examiner, Leslie Williams writes that he loves “the bright juicy fruits found in the Mencía grape” really likes “the straightforward bright fruits in this entry level version”
“Luscious soft ripe dark fruits, with a touch of spice. Slips down all too easily.” John Wilson in the Irish Times.
