Characteristics Guímaro Finca Meixeman

Guímaro Finca Meixeman is a red wine from the D.O Ribeira Sacra produced by the Guímaro winery. This wine is a blend of Mencía (80%) with various native varieties from the region (Caíño, Sousón, Brancellao, Merenzao, Negreda, Garnacha and Mouratón).

The grapes used for this wine come from an estate than occupies little more than one hectare, called Meixeman, the same as the wine. It is home to vines that are over 70 years old that grow at altitudes of 40-450 metres, on slate soils with a southeast facing orientation.

The harvest is carried out using small boxes, which ensures that the harvest and grapes are not damaged during transit to the winery’s facilities. The vinification begins with a phase of fermentation in closed conical tanks in which 60% of the grapes are worked whole and 40% with the stemse. The process lasts between one and two months. The must obtained from which will be born Guímaro Finca Meixeman is then bled and gently and gently pressed.

Guímaro Finca Meixeman then ages for one year in 500kg capacity French oak barrels before finally undergoing malolactic fermentation. Before being bottled, without being clarified or filtered, this wine is decanted into tanks, where it rests for 2 months more. The wine then is refined in the bottle for 3 months.

Guímaro is a small Galician winery. The Mencía grape, as well as other native varieties, help form part of the repertoire of the project.

Among the regions that make up the landscape of Galician wines, Ribeira Sacra is one of the most representative scenarios of what is known as heroic viticulture. To the heroic character of Guímaro, we must add the familiar and traditional dedication that the human team has with nature, to achieve wines that are honest with the terroir where they are born. Adegas Guímaro is among the 100 Best Wineries of the World 2015, according to the ranking made each year by Wine & Spirits magazine for the Top 100 Tasting Event awards. Its red wines Finca Pombeiras and Finca Capeliños, both with 96 points, are also at the top of the Galician ranking in the Robert Parker newsletter of 2015.
Pictures and situation Guímaro
Ribeira Sacra is one of those magical places that you just have to visit to truly experience it. The vertiginous terraces rise steep on the banks of the river Sil, making the terrain difficult to work on that it requires complete manual work and labor on the vineyards. The agriculture carried out here is aptly referred to as ‘heroic agriculture’, due to the hard work carried out cultivating the land. Both red and white wines are produced in the Ribeira Sacra. The red wines are mostly made with the Mencía variety, defined by their expressive and elegant character with a good acidity. The Ribeira Sacra white wines are principally made with the Godello and Albariño varieties. They are wines with a good volume in the mouth, aromatic and fruity. The Ribeira Sacra wines are often come in very limited productions, are of high quality and with notable personalities.
