2019 Guímaro Ribeira Sacra Tinto
Tasting Notes ~ Guímaro Tinto is the Adega’s entry-level “joven” wine. It comes from multiple plots of Mencía vines, along with a small amount of other co-planted native varieties, with an average age of 40 years old. The grapes are hand-harvested, 65-75 percent destemmed, fermented with native yeasts in steel vats, and aged on the lees for 6 months. The finished wine is fined with egg white, cold-stabilized, but not filtered before bottling. This un-oaked tinto is all about immediate pleasure with pure, lush red fruits, spices, and slate-laden minerality.
