Characteristics of Paixar

Paixer is a red wine from the D.O Bierzo produced by the Paixer winery. This is a single variety wine made with the Mencía grape, a classic variety of the region.

The grapes used for this wine come from old vines (which are over 80 years old), planted on slopes with a south facing orientation, at altitudes of between 700 and 1000 metres. The vineyards used span a total of six hectares and are home to slate and stony soils. The climate of the area is mainly Atlantic continental character, with generally low throughout the year average temperatures.

The harvest is carried out relatively late, when the grapes for Paixer have reached their optimum point of maturation, and is carried out manually using small boxes. This ensures that the grapes and bunches do not rupture and ferment prematurely. At the winery, the grapes undergo cold pre-fermative maceration, followed by fermentation using native yeasts.

Paixer then rests for 22 months in new French oak barrels before being bottled and placed onto the market. The result: a long and enveloping wine, with a good acidity, slightly dry and earthy.

Tasting notes Paixar

The 2015 vintage was characterised by low rainfall. The lack of water throughout the year brought the vegetative cycle of the vine forward and it was not until days before the harvest that it started to rain considerably. This caused the grape to hydrate and lead to a somewhat fresher vintage than what it initially seemed. The continental character that this vintage looked like it was going to have was mitigated by the rain before the harvest, balancing the phenolic ripeness, qualifying the vintage as excellent. The wines of this vintage have an excellent balance between structure, acidity and texture in the mouth. A vintage that can age perfectly.
The 2013 vintage was characterised by the influence of the Atlantic climate. Autumn and winter were the typical ones of El Bierzo, with abundant rainfall and low temperatures. Spring came in the same way, with some hail that destroyed crops in some places and lead to the delay in flowering. Summer did not make much of an appearance either, with low temperatures, ripening and the growth cycle were quite slow. The harvest date was delayed by 3 weeks.The wines of this vintage are characterised by a thin profile. The Atlantic climate left its mark on these lighter wines with a marked acidity. Ready to be stored.

Designation of Origin D.O. Bierzo

Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
