2020 Guimaro 'A Ponte', Ribeira Sacra, Spain


Origin: Ribeira Sacra, Galicia, Spain.

Varieties: About 30% Mencía with equal parts Caiño Redondo, Caiño Longo, Sousón, Brancellao and Merenzao (Trousseau) making up the remainder.

Vineyard: From a single parcel (A Ponte) at the very top of the hill in Amandi, which Pedro cleared and planted in 2010. The site, which is the coolest and highest in the area, and the choice to plant to a mix of varieties make this a unique wine. The soils are quartz -rich granite and slate.

Vinification Method: The grapes were harvested by hand and fermented with native yeasts on the skins in used French oak vats with 100% whole clusters. After fermentation, the wine was racked to 500L used French oak barrels, where it rested for more than a year. No fining, no filtering, and only a small sulfur addition at bottling.


Alcohol: 14 %

Bottles Made: 4,000.
