Adegas Guimaro, Joven, Ribera Sacra 2017 (6 x 75cl) (6x 75cl)

Pedro Rodriguez descends from a long line of growers working in the Amandi area, a sub zone of Ribeira Sacra with south facing vineyards, just above the river Sil. Until 1991, Pedro’s family  had only produced small quantities of wine for their own consumption which they sometimes sold in glass garrafones (20 litre glass containers) to local restaurants. It was oenologist Luis Buitrón, who was instrumental in the creation of the Ribeira Sacra D.O. and helped the Rodríguez family to begin bottling their wines. They named their winery after Pedro’s grandfather, who’s nickname “Guímaro” means rebel in their local dialect. Guímaro was one of the first adegas to join the Ribera Sacra D.O. in 1996. 

The grapes for this wine are hand-harvested, mostly destemmed, then fermented with natural yeasts in steel vats. The wine is also aged on the lees for 6 months. The finished wine is fined with egg white and is 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.
