Characteristics of Cuatro Pasos
Cuatro Pasos is a red wine from Bierzo produced by the Martin Codax winery.
The winery, located in the Valle del Salnés (Pontevedra), is characterized by its connection and affirmation of Galician culture, it is no coincidence that takes the name of a famous Galician troubadour.
Cuatro Pasos are 100% made from Mencia. The grapes come from vineyards with an average age of 80 years from 4 properties located in 4 different towns: Otero, Hornija, Corullón and Valtuille. The vineyards are planted on slate soils in the high areas of the Bierzo.
For its preparation, a first fermentation of the must in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures occurs. After this process, the wine ages for 2 months in barrels of French and American oak.
Cuatro Pasos gets its name from the spectacular bear tracks that were once found in one of the fields where Mencia vineyards are cultivated.

A vintage where the Atlantic climate has ruled over the continental. The lightness of this type of climate, together with the perfect sanitary condition of the vineyard, has given rise to an excellent vintage from this area.
The year began with typical temperate and rainy winter weather. What differentiated the year was the intense rains that fell between the months of April and May, conditioning the vegetative development of the vine. The summer was then noticeable for being warm and dry, the perfect combination for the perfect grape.

In recent years, winemakers and developers have settled in the DO Bierzo with very plausible innovative ideas, investing heavily in local wineries, resulting in the production of personal and unique wines. There is no doubt that El Bierzo has become a trendy and cool D.O, aided by the spicy, delicate and velvety Mencia grape, whose character and great capacity of expression of terroir is undoubtedly the regions best asset. Even many compare it to the Pinot Noir, which together with the small scale style of production and topography of its vineyards, the traditional form of the Burgundian bottle used, and the original use of the names of towns and places in their best wines, resulted in this wine region being given the nickname of "little Spanish burgundy".
