I was completely blown away by the 2018 Finca Pombeiras, the most elegant and ethereal vintage for this wine, which always has a lighter color and a more floral and perfumed personality. In 2018, it's really open and expressive, but at the same time, it has a wild side that's exuberant, primal and a little raw, with a sensation of authenticity that is hard to describe. This Mencía-based field blend is always fermented with 100% full clusters and indigenous yeasts in 1,500-liter oak vats and matured in well-seasoned 500-liter French oak barrels for one year. The wine opens up spectacularly in the glass, unfurling layers and layers of aromas and textures, a wine in motion, with lots of energy and light. This has to be the finest Pombeiras to date. And not only that, I think this is the finest wine ever produced at Guímaro. Bravo! This is more Burgundy, and Capeliños is more Rhône. Some 800 bottles were filled in April 2020. They have bought a new small plot in Pombeiras, a parcel that's higher up and contributed one 225-liter barrel to the blend in 2018. (98) LUIS GUTIERREZ
