    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!

    Review

    For some reason, I missed the 2017 Finca Meixeman when I tasted the other single-vineyard reds from that year, so I took the opportunity to taste it now so that you have a note about it in our database. The big hailstorm that exploded above the Guímaro vineyards in 2016 not only destroyed that year's crop, but also damaged the plants, which didn't fully recover until 2018. This felt a bit reductive and needed time to breath and open up, so decanting it in advance might be a good idea. It's an earthier wine than the 2018 (comparisons wit the 2018s are tough for any other vintage!), with more iron-like aromas of blood and rusty nails. The palate reveals some austerity and dusty tannins, clearly in need of food. 92/100 Luis Gutiérrrez

    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.
