Guímaro Blanco 2019
La Godello se hace acompañar con otras variedades blancas autóctonas de Ribeira Sacra (Treixadura, Albariño, Torrontés y Loureira) en el vino más accesible de Guímaro. Estas castas aportan peculiares matices que enriquecen el conjunto final tanto olfativa como gustativamente. Destaca su expresiva nariz con intensos aromas a fruta madura y un toque balsámico de laurel y su largo posgusto en boca. Estamos ante una de las añadas más frescas y finas de este blanco joven.

Opinión de los críticos
The young white 2019 Vino Blanco is a Godello-based blend with 35% Treixadura, Albariño, Torrontés and Loureira from different plots in different villages, with different soils, expositions and altitudes, trying to replicate the whites from before, which were never varietal and were always blends. 2018 was a very good year, with a complete cycle and textbook conditions for the harvest. This was bottled unoaked after six months sur lie. It's 12.5% alcohol. The vines sprouted very early, but the cool summer slowed things down (in Monforte, it was the coolest August in the last 10 years); and the harvest dates were normal, which means a very long cycle, perfect ripening, lower pH, good acidity and a good crop (a record) with very healthy grapes. The wine is very clean, expressive and fruit-driven with a balsamic touch of bay leaf (the Loureira!), and the difference at this very early age is the vibrant palate (it was a good crop of Albariño and Treixadura that could have contributed to good acidity). One of the freshest and finest vintages of the young white. 10,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2020. Luis Guitérrez
