Producer: Guimaro
Region: Ribeira Sacra, Galicia, Spain
Varietal: Mencia
Year: 2018

Decanter, 92 Points

This is predominantly Mencia but also contains some Brancellao, Merenzao, Caíño Tinto, Sousón, Mouratón and Garnacha Tinta. Gently fragrant, this puts forth violets and blueberries with a subtle nuttiness and a touch of liquorice. Fairly slight in frame, it coats the tongue and delivers a gently pulling sensation in the mouth rather than a tannic grip. It feels very naturally balanced despite the low acidity, with its pure fruit, tannins and alcohol all in balance. A quiet, understated wine with a real sense of place.”

About the Producer: 

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.

Alcohol: 13%
