Adegas Guimaro Mencia Joven 2016
Leader of the up-and-coming Ribeira Sacra appellation, this estate is now under the expertise of the talented Pedro Manuel Rodríguez Pérez. It is the immense potential of the abandoned Galician terraces that caught the eye of his father and ancestors. They were without a doubt pioneers of the region’s revival. Made from 40 year-old Mencía, this red offers suppleness that makes it quite accessible and charming. The mouth reveals lavender, violet, spices, blueberry and cherry; tastes like a total favourite!
