Characteristics of Las Gundiñas
Las Gundiñas is a red wine from Bierzo, prepared by the small winery La Vizcaína de Vinos, led by renowned winemaker Raul Perez, who had the idea of producing wines with great expression of the vineyard through traditional production together with minimal intervention.
Las Gundiñas is a blend, with Mencia variety as the main grape, completed in small quantities by three little-known varieties: Alicante Bouschet, Estaladina and Souson. The grapes come from a small vineyard located on the bottom of a slope. The vines are planted in deep soil, rich in clay that collects water and rainfall sediment. Harvesting is done by hand in small boxes. Fermentation occurs in timber vats of 5000 litres, the whole grape is pressed each day until fermentation occurs. Once the fermentation has occurred, the grapes macerate for 40-60 days. Finally, Las Gundiñas is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. A fresh and fruity wine made in the traditional way by Raúl Pérez, a master at maximising the use of the land. A light wine, fresh and juicy with very soft tannins and a great balance between alcohol and acidity.

The 2015 vintage was characterised by low rainfall. The lack of water throughout the year brought the vegetative cycle of the vine forward and it was not until days before the harvest that it started to rain considerably. This caused the grape to hydrate and lead to a somewhat fresher vintage than what it initially seemed. The continental character that this vintage looked like it was going to have was mitigated by the rain before the harvest, balancing the phenolic ripeness, qualifying the vintage as excellent. The wines of this vintage have an excellent balance between structure, acidity and texture in the mouth. A vintage that can age perfectly.
The 2014 vintage was characterised by a marked Atlantic climate. The rains and the cold in autumn prevailed, leading to a somewhat warmer than usual winter. Spring started mildly, with a two-week delay in budding and the rains were sporadic, with a total water accumulation of 1,000 mm that gives the vintage its Atlantic character. In July and August, temperatures rose and rainfall was scarce, leaving the grapes to ripen in an excellent way and giving the vintage a little more structure. At the end of August, they suffered high temperatures, and in September, the traditional rains made the harvest quite difficult. The wines of this vintage are characterised by their great complexity. A wine with an Atlantic and fresh character and a structure provided by the warmer end of cycle. Wines with a long life ahead.
The 2013 vintage was characterised by the influence of the Atlantic climate. Autumn and winter were the typical ones of El Bierzo, with abundant rainfall and low temperatures. Spring came in the same way, with some hail that destroyed crops in some places and lead to the delay in flowering. Summer did not make much of an appearance either, with low temperatures, ripening and the growth cycle were quite slow. The harvest date was delayed by 3 weeks.The wines of this vintage are characterised by a thin profile. The Atlantic climate left its mark on these lighter wines with a marked acidity.

Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity. Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
La Vizcaína de Vinos is a relatively new project by the multifaceted winegrower and oenologist Raúl Pérez in his homeland: El Bierzo. He started and executed this project with his nephews, César Márquez and Nerea Pérez, the latter tragically deceased during the vintage of 2014. Raúl is a viticulture philosopher. He is also a consultant, as well as an oenologist, and he is the creator of genuine wines. All in all, quite a renown figure in our country. His name is on the lips of many good aficionados, and some of his wines are on the agenda of Robert Parker, although his labels are produced in quantities that seem more virtual than real.
