Silice Viticultores, Galicia Tinto 2017 (750ml)

Brothers Juan and Carlos Rodriguez teamed up with Priorat and Montsant producer Fredi Torres to form Silice Viticultores. As friends and natives of Galicia, their love for Ribeira Sacra brought them together and reconnecting with their roots became the driving force behind making wine there. Extreme vineyards, respectful viticulture, and artisanal winemaking became the pillars of their union. Not only have these remained the pillars of their foundation, but in some cases they’ve taken extreme vineyards to downright dangerous. Access to some of them was almost impossible, can’t even imagine what harvest is like…

Working with 6 small vineyards ranging from 40 to 100+ years of age, all of which spread across the steep slate and granite slopes of Amandi, their organic practice and biodynamic principles along with their minimal intervention in cellar sets them apart from the rest of their neighbors. They made their first vintage in 2013 and rapidly became a reference for elegance and finesse in the region. 80% Mencia mixed with Merenzao, Albarello, Garnacha Tintorera and other local grapes including whites, Silice is a representation of the region as whole where their Finca wines represent unique single vineyards worthy of recognition as are Lobeiras and Romeo.
