Ribeira Sacra Tinto, Adegas Guimaro

 From multiple plots of Mencía vines with an average age of 40 years old, located in and around Amandi. The un-oaked tinto is all about immediate pleasure with pure, lush red fruits, spices, and slate-laden minerality.  A wine to pair with all kinds of foods, especially chorizos, embutidos, roast pork, spicy foods, any dish with a lot of Pimentón. 4,000 cases produced.

Review:
Again, the red 2015 Guímaro was recently bottled and up for tasting. This old vine blend is dominated by Mencía but has some 15% of other grapes. It fermented in stainless steel and is kept in contact with the fine lees but without bâttonage. I feel higher ripeness in the unoaked 2015 than in the 2014, it feels a little exuberant and young, fruit-driven and with a juicy palate with very fine tannins. Very gulpable
