    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

    I was completely blown away by the 2018 Finca Pombeiras, the most elegant and ethereal vintage for this wine, which always has a lighter color and a more floral and perfumed personality. In 2018, it's really open and expressive, but at the same time, it has a wild side that's exuberant, primal and a little raw, with a sensation of authenticity that is hard to describe. This Mencía-based field blend is always fermented with 100% full clusters and indigenous yeasts in 1,500-liter oak vats and matured in well-seasoned 500-liter French oak barrels for one year. The wine opens up spectacularly in the glass, unfurling layers and layers of aromas and textures, a wine in motion, with lots of energy and light. This has to be the finest Pombeiras to date. And not only that, I think this is the finest wine ever produced at Guímaro. Bravo! This is more Burgundy, and Capeliños is more Rhône. Some 800 bottles were filled in April 2020. They have bought a new small plot in Pombeiras, a parcel that's higher up and contributed one 225-liter barrel to the blend in 2018. 98/100 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.
