The 2019 Fontelas was produced with grapes from three small plots in the zone of Fontelas in the paraje, or lieu-dit, San Martín in the village of Corullón. It's 0.3 hectares of steep slopes planted with vines ranging from 60 to 90 years of age that are farmed traditionally following biodynamic principles. Yields were 10.2 hectoliters per hectare (this comes from the higher altitude part where the soils are very poor), and there are around 7,000 vines per hectare. As with most of the wines, the partly destemmed grapes fermented with indigenous yeasts in oak vats and matured in barrels and foudres, in this case for eight months. This felt a little riper and very juicy, very intense, a little more in the style from a few years ago, with more (natural) concentration, but at the same time, the slow ripening provided for full development of aromas and with the grainy tannins that seem to be common to the wines from this vintage. This is slightly more open and faintly oxidative in character. Only 350 bottles, 21 magnums and four double magnums produced.

Another bottling also only sold in Spain is the 2018 Fontelas, which had not been produced since 2006. It comes from a plot in the San Martín zone that gets shadow very early in the afternoon. It's one of the few places with some 2% limestone, a very humid zone (the name comes from "fountain"). Two percent is very low, but it gives a dry and serious touch to the wine, a bit of a chalky sensation in the texture. It showcases the fragile balance between the juicy fruit, the moderate acidity, the austere stony feeling and the Mediterranean (warmer) and Atlantic. They have a lot of vineyards in this zone, and they only use a selection for this, but there is a lot of this in the Corullón bottling, perhaps 10% (and also in Pétalos). This is slightly different from the others; this is stricter, not as juicy and silky as the others, with a somewhat drier finish. It has pungent flavors, a little more Rhône-ish than the others, with lots of balance and seriousness, not as jovial as other Mencía can be, more Cornas than Burgundy. This will eventually be a Vino de Paraje. Only 800 bottles, 53 magnums and five double magnums were produced. This is different.
