Production: A single vineyard wine, Finca A Ponte, located at the highest part of Amandi at 400-550 meters above sea level from 10 years old vines planted on granite and slate soils. Guímaro A Ponte is a blend where the Mencía is in similar proportion as the other local autochthonous varieties used in the blend. Hand harvested, fermented in conical tanks with indigenous yeasts, full clusters grapes. The wine matures in a 5000-l. oak barrel for 16 -18 months, bottled in March 2021 without clarifying or filtering.
Tasting Note: A Ponte is a wine that improves vintage after vintage, displaying good complexity and depth, all despite the young ages of the vines where it comes from. Clean and fresh, floral, spiced notes, quite juice and fresh on the palate, finesse and elegance all the way till the end.
Notes: Drinks nicely for 3 – 4 years
