The 2018 Finca Meixeman comes from one of their oldest vineyards and was produced with the varietal blend in the vineyard?80% Mencia and 20% Brancellao, Merenzao, Garnacha, Mouraton, Negreda and Souson. Most of the reds from 2018 are 13% alcohol, which is lower than in the past and achieved through picking earlier. This is serious and a little closed, more in the direction of the Capelinos than the Pombeiras. But the palate is impressive, very complete, harmonious, pungent and vibrant. 2018 was a return to the style after a catastrophic 2016 vintage with hail and the 2017 vintage when the vines were recovering. This is from the lower part of A Ponte, with granite and slate soils, and it's a little more powerful. It's really impressive, one of the finest. There are around 7,000 bottles of this.
