El Pecado is 100% Mencía from the region of the Ribera Sacra; this was the first wine from Raúl Pérez from the area of Ribera Sacra and one of the most successful and sought-after. A Mencía wine that it is made in Adegas Guimaro, always sourced from the Capeliños vineyard, a very old vineyard situated in an exceptional site with steep slopes that belong to Guimaro. It is sold without the Denomination of Origin seal. 60% destemmed grapes fermented in an open 3000-liter oak vat with native yeasts and aged in used oak barriques for approx. 12 months, and as most of Raúl’s wines, the production of El Pecado is very limited. 1000 bottles produced.
Raúl Pérez is regarded as among the most talented and innovative winemakers, almost a legend within the Spanish wine making world and abroad. The collaboration with other wine makers and wineries has also proved a great success. He works with the autochthonous varietals of the area. He makes amazing wines in different appellations in Galicia and elsewhere, always small and select productions. To get hold of his wines is not that easy as they are probably one of the most sought-after.
Tasting notes: Mineral and perfumed with a note of dry flowers and aromatic herbs, hints of ripe black fruits, currents and raspberries and a touch of spiciness. Elegant, complex and very stylish, great acidity and fine tannins.
Notes: With a good capacity for ageing, it will continue to evolve for several years and will drink well for 10 – 15 years.
