Ribeira Sacra Tinto, ‘Finca Meixeman’, Adegas Guimaro
From a single 1.2 ha plot -facing south-east- of 70 year old Mencía vines planted on schist at 400-450 meters. This is the original family-owned vineyard that helped the Rodriguez’s create theiradega. The cuvee gets a unique vinification with foot-treading, partial whole cluster fermentation in open top cono, long maceration on the skins and raspónes, and aging for 12-14 months in old 225 liter French oak. With a core of kirsch-like red fruit, spices, and minerals, this is a serious wine to pair with wild game, offal, braises, stews, roasted or grilled meats. 700 cases (6 packs) produced.
