2014 Guimaro Ribeira Sacra Finca Meixeman
Region: Galicia Ribeira Sacra, Spain
James Suckling, 93 Points
“Fresh nose of black cherries and currants with tomato leaves and slate. Full body and soft and well-integrated tannins that follow through to long, ripe, soft and clean finish. Delicious and so balanced. Drink now.”
The young and ambitious Pedro Rodriguez descends from a long line of colleteiros working in the Amandi area, Ribeira Sacra’s most prime subzone with south facing vineyards planted on slate just above the river Sil. His parents Manolo and Carmen still work the vineyards daily alongside him. The family also maintains a small finca of mixed agriculture, raising chickens, rabbits, pigs, and cultivating a sizable vegetable patch. The culmination of the family’s agrarian traditions manifested with the establishment of their adega in 1991. They named their winery after Pedro’s grandfather, who’s nickname “Guímaro” means rebel in their local dialect.
Our team says that Ribeira Sacra is definitely on the rise with many Spanish wine drinkers passing on Rioja and Priorat to enjoy the charming complex wines of Galicia.
