    Capeliños is meedere malen verkozen als beste rode wijnen uit Galicië. Van de single vineyards van Guimaro (Meixamam, A Ponte, Pombeiras) de meest speciale cru.  

    Guimaro

    Na twintig jaar hard werken heeft Pedro een prachtig domein gecreëerd dat klaar is voor de toekomst. Het bezoek aan de wijngaarden is indrukwekkend! Wat een helden werk wordft hier verricht om het mogelijk te maken deze unieke wijnen te bottelen! zo steil, alles met hand. Er is geen enkele twijfel over de succesvolle toekomst van Guimaro, mede doordat Guiterrez van Parker al meerdere malen de Finca Capellinos als beste wijn van Galicië heeft uitgeroepen! All time favourite!

    The 2018 Finca Capeliños shows 13% alcohol on the label, lower than before. It's a more elegant expression of the vineyard. They have been harvesting earlier to achieve that, and macerations have also been reduced, the wine is turning more elegant and harmonious. I think, in 2018, the Capeliños is moving more in the direction of the Pombeiras, toward more finesse. This has a lighter color and integrated oak that is still a little more noticeable in the background compared with the Pombeiras, as this is aged in barrique and Pombeiras in 500-liter barrels. It's elegant and perfumed, with a medium-bodied palate and great balance. It has the elegant rusticity of the best wines from Ribeira Sacra; it's more powerful and serious than the Pombeiras and also a little more backward, from a very fresh vintage, in line with 2014, one of the best ever. It's 70% Mencía and 30% other varieties found in the field blend, fermented with 40% full clusters and the rest uncrushed, and it matured in used 225-liter oak barrels for one year. This should be very long-lived, perhaps longer than the Pombeiras; this is more Rhône and Pombeiras more Burgundy. Only 800 bottles were filled in March 2020. 97/100 Luis Gutiérrez

    Guímaro has 11 hectares of vineyards—all in the Amandi subzone of Ribeira Sacra and all in the village of Doade—and they control another 20 hectares across Ribeira Sacra. They produce 160,000 bottles per year. Since 2013, alcohol levels have been lowered, and it's not low alcohol just for the hell of it. But when you are able to harvest earlier with ripe grapes and lower alcohol, the wines show the terroir more transparently. This change has been gradual, and in 2019, some of the wines have alcohol levels of 12.5%. I caught the 2018s, which could very well be their finest vintage to date.
