The name means the blood of the stones and for good reason. Here, the vineyard site is on top of a plateau of red clay, limestone, and copious round stones. These stones are influential in the creation of this wine’s depth of flavor and intensity. Rich notes of earth and dark, brooding fruit.
Guimaro’s blanco sports an intense waxy texture and wild tropical aromatics of pineapple and ripe guava. Despite its power it is very much a wine of the Ribiera Sacra and a result of Pedro Rodriguez’s rebel winemaking. Pedro farms vineyards on the steep lopes of the river Sil. Low yield, high altitude, foot-stomped Godello is wild-fermented and aged on its lees for 6 months. This is an under-the-radar gem. Only 275 cases produced.
Food friendly, versatile and perfect with a slight chill. They're BBQ All-Stars.
