Goyo García

Tasting one of Goyo García’s wines is like taking a delightful trip back in a winemaking time machine. Goyo is a descendant of one of the most well-respected winemaking families in the Ribera de Duero region, and the talented  genes have definitely been passed on. 

With vines that are a minimum of 80 years old, Goyo farms three small plots of his own in the Ribera de Duero, each at different altitudes and on different types of soil. Each vineyard is interplanted with both red and white grapes, which he later co-ferments using natural methods, as winemakers did in the older days of Ribera de Duero winemaking.

All of his wines are de-stemmed, fermented exclusively with wild yeast, and nothing is added during elevagé (including SO2). The wines are raised in old French barrels at an underground, century-old cueva located in Gumiel del Mercado.

This method has become somewhat of a trend for more contemporary winemakers. For Goyo, it has been his tried and true way of doing things since he began making wine back in the 80’s. He uses these traditional winemaking methods in order to express a flavour profile that reflects the overall vineyard rather than the individual grape varietal.

    Joven Vinas Viejas is a great introduction to Goyo García's unique artisanal, minimal-interventionist winemaking style. A single-vineyard Tempranillo wine, Joven Vinas Viejas is grown on sandy clay and limestone soils 880 metres above sea level in Spain's Ribeira del Duero region. 

    This is a juicy red with intense aromas of red and black fruits. On the palate, it is fresh, balanced and very fruity. A serious red with depth without being heavy.

    The grapes are hand-harvested, destemmed, and then fermented with indigenous yeasts in steel tanks. Pair this wine with lamb, sausages or beef.

    Alcohol 14.5%

    This unusual wine is comprised of 80% Mencía and 20% Palomino, a vineyard mix often found in the Cantabria region of northern Spain. The vines are at least 80 years old and planted in broken slate soils.

    The red and white grapes were co-fermented with wild yeasts in steel vats, It was then raised for 12 months in old French oak barrels without any SO2.

    The result is an aromatic wine, ruby in colour, with formidable structure. It's like Morgon meets Barolo!

    The nose is greeted with floral aromatics. In the mouth, mineral elements linger with very fine tannins and vibrant acidity. Bright, delicious fruit and delicately salty notes are perfectly balanced by the lacy, yet firm structure.

    This wine is elegance in a glass.

    Alcohol: 13.5%

    Finca el Peruco is made with 85% Tempranillo and 15% Albillo. The vineyard is at an altitude of over 900 metres, making it one of the highest spots in the Ribera del Duero. The vines grow in chalky, calcareous soil.

    Harvested very early, the grapes are hand-picked into small boxes. The grapes were de-stemmed and then macerated in the cold. The must was fermented with native yeasts in old oak barrels for 3 weeks. It was then raised in similar French oak barrels for 16 months, without any addition of sulfur.

    The nose is complex, slightly reduced with fleshy aromas.

    In the mouth, it is light and mineral with saline notes. The wine has very good acidity that makes it refreshing. As time goes by, the wine opens up towards mature notes that reflect aging in wood.

    This is a very special red, containing white grapes, that give it a unique personality. Utterly delicious!
