The wine

The winemaking project set up by Telmo Rodríguez and Pablo Eguzkiza in 1994 started out, as they confess, with few resources but plenty of ideas. Compañía de Vinos de Telmo Rodríguez has grown and grown based on journeys to discover a complex, unique and amazingly diverse winemaking country with a rich range of spectacular landscapes.  

One fine example of their project is Gaba do Xil Tinto, the latest creation of Telmo Rodriguez in his never-ending search for new and unique terroirs. A fantastic expression of an inland Atlantic Mencia wine whose vines, planted in clay and slate soils, ensure the finished product can boast freshness, expressiveness and minerality.

What does this wine taste like?

Gaba do Xil Tinto bursts with energy and delightful seductive aromas of spices and wild fruit. It is a mature wine, but also extremely well-balanced thanks to its measured acidity. A flavoursome and wide drink, it delights the mouth with pleasant sensations and fine herbal tones. Its top quality and lingering finish is way beyond expectations for a wine at this price. It offers the austere texture of granite soils and delicate fragrances of its fruit thanks to the utmost respect the winery works the vineyards with.
