"El Pecado is always produced with grapes from the very small Capeliños vineyard that belongs to Guímaro, just over half a hectare of very old vines — they don’t know exactly how old, but it must be about 100 years old. The vineyard is on a slope at some 350 to 400 meters above sea level and is planted with a Mencía field blend, as in the old times, they always included small percentages of other grapes. They destem a percentage of the grapes, which changes depending on the vintage, and the 2018 was approximately 60% destemmed and fermented in an open 3,000-liter oak vat with indigenous yeasts. It then matured in used 228-liter oak barrels. In 2018, it has a slightly lighter color and is a little more ethereal and elegant than other vintages, with less alcohol and terrific balance. This is perfumed and elegant, a little fuller than La Penitencia, with a very faint creamy touch, perhaps from being aged in the smaller barrels. It has to be one of the finest vintages of El Pecado."
