Guimaro Ribeira Sacra Blanco 2016 Product #33256 (In Stock)

Perhaps the most exciting region in Spain right now, the steeply terraced slopes of Galicia's Ribeira Sacra have more in common with Germany's Mosel than anything else.  Here Pedro Rodriguez takes 50-70 year-old vine Godello, crushes it by foot in tank, and leaves it alone to ferment wild and rest on its lees for 6 months. The result is an exciting wine that starts very dry and waxy then fills your mouth with richness as peach and lemon fruit comes up. An iodine note and the driving finish make this a brilliant match for shellfish.

"About 75% Godello and the rest a blend of Treixadura and Albariño to add aroma and freshness plus a little Torrontés and Loureiro that he found. It's kept with the lees but without bâtonnage for four to six months. Comes through as a fresher version than the 2015. It finishes dry and with a salty minerality. It's very tasty."Wine Advocate 92 points
