Raúl Pérez Pereira is universally considered to be one of the world’s most visionary winemakers. Since he produced his first vintage for his family’s winery in 1994 at the age 22, he has been in the forefront of the conversation about what has been called “The New Spain”. In 2005, he left his family business to strike out on his own, creating Bodegas y Viñedos Raúl Pérez, which quickly became the point of reference for the Bierzo appellation. In the intervening years, he has expanded his sphere of activity to include the appellations of Rías Baixas, Ribeira Sacra and Tierra de León, but his heart and his home remain in Valtuille de Abajo, the village in Bierzo where his family has been tending vines for well over 300 years.
'La Penitencia' is made with grapes sourced from Guimaro's Pombeiras vineyard. Mostly made from Mencia , are also a myriad of other native Galician grapes including some white varieties. This is a hugely expressive wine, with intense and juicy fruit and a wild herbal touch. There is wonderful minerality and freshness that continues long and through the finish. A superb wine. Only 800 bottles made.
