Ribeira Sacra is a cool-climate wine region in the northwest of Spain. Guimaro is the region’s leading producer, growing a mix of local grapes on some of the steepest vineyard slopes in the world! His wines are elegant, fresh and mineral – quite unlike the more powerful, fruit-packed reds you may be used to from warmer regions of Spain such as Ribera del Duero or Priorat.
An unusual “field” blend of 30% Mencía, 17.5% Caiño, 17.5% Sousón, 17.5% Brancellao and 17.5% Merenzao from one of the family’s oldest vineyards, which they replanted 10 years ago. From extremely slatey soils at fairly high altitudes of 420-550 mts. It spent 12 months in used 500lt French oak barrels.
On the nose it is gently floral; in the mouth these violet and spice notes grow and combine with fresh raspberry fruit. This has crunchy fresh acidity combined with real depth, structure and minerality; a stone-cold whack of slate on the finish. Quite unique in style! 13% alcohol. 4,000bts were produced.
Serve with a meat risotto, grilled red meats or roasted white meats.
