I would consider Guimaro probably one of the best producers in Ribeira Sacra and the white is drinking really well right now. Predominately Godello, but also several other grapes this has really good aromatics with notes of spiced quince, melon and citrus. Don't drink this too cold as you'll use the nuance too.  And with air this really gets expressive.
Normally this is $23, but we got some at a bit of price reduction.

"2016 was truly an "annus horribilis" in Ribeira Sacra and especially in the Sil zone where Guimaro has the vineyards. So, very little wine was produced from that year, and I tasted the young, unoaked white 2016 Guimaro. It's about 75% Godello and the rest a blend of Treixadura and Albarino to add aroma and freshness plus a little Torrontes and Loureiro that he found. It's kept with the lees but without batonnage for four to six months. It's very balsamic with medicinal notes, a constant across vintages. It seems like some rain just before the grapes were picked helped a good development of the whites, allowing development of flavors and aromas. They finished harvesting slowly and finished around the 12th of October. It's a fresher year, with a little lower alcohol, which comes through as a fresher version than the 2015. It finishes dry and with a salty minerality. It's very tasty." 92+ pts Luis Gutierrez The Wine Advocate
