Guimaro Mencia Ribeira Sacra 2018

20.00

“Meaning ‘rebel’ in local Gallego dialect, Guimaro was founded in 1991 by Pedro Rodriguez, a practicing organic farmer in Galicia. The winery’s Mencia grows on old vines, keeping yields naturally low, giving way to concentrated, juicy fruit. Succulent, spicy, and perfect for taco night” Verve wine

Ribeira Sacra is regarded as the most spectacular, yet still largely unexplored DO in the North-Eastern Spain. Just as the neighbouring Bierzo and Valdeorras, the recognition this area received in recent years, was only possible thanks to the determination and courage of a handful of young winemakers. Among them Pedro Rodriguez of Guimaro stands out with the range of his unique, divinely scented wines. They combine the intensity of old vine Godello and Mencia fruit, with the extraordinary freshness and finesse, derived from the high altitude, Atlantic influenced vineyards – VinisitoThe wines of Adega Guimaro are made by Pedro Rodríguez Peréz whose family have been instrumental in renovating the abandoned terraces of mencia that are so steep they rival the Mosel for sheer precariousness. He owns just seven hectares of vineyards, farming them completely by hand, in the tiny region of Ribeira Sacra in Galicia, north-west Spain. Here mencia has been grown for centuries, and to an extent ignored, but in recent years many young winemakers, like Pedro, are rediscovering these ancient vineyards and bringing them back to life with improved viticultural methods.

“Pedro’s mencias are the ultimate in refined elegance (he uses virtually no new oak to mask flavours), floral fruit nose and minerality, with impeccable balance and freshness, reminiscent of the best Loire Valley cabernet francs. They reflect the vibrancy and lightness of touch that is typical of the cooler climate in Ribeira Sacra, and are a delight to drink” – Wine Society
