Characteristics of Peique Tinto Mencía

Peique Tinto Mencía is a red wine produced by Bodegas Peique in Valtuille de Abajo, D.O.Bierzo.

 

The Peique family owned a small vineyard and had been making small lots of wine for many years; after a couple of years of bottling tests, in 2001 they finally decided to build a small winery and make a qualitative leap, thanks to Jorge, one of the sons of Luis Peique, who is a professional oenologist that works for an important wine group every day.

The vineyard has 40 hectares divided between their own vineyards and vineyards provided by neighbours who cannot look after them. This vineyard is formed by small plots ranging between 0.2 and 1 hectare, located between 450 and 600 metres of altitude, with the influence of an Atlantic climate, partly continental and mild.

Currently, Bodegas Peique produces a wide range of wines that express the terroir of its vineyards and the philosophy that has been created during the last three family generations in Valtuille de Abajo.

 

Peique Tinto Mencía is a wine made from Mencía, from vineyards that are between 45 and 55 years old, located at 450-580 metres of altitude.

The harvest is performed manually. Once the grapes arrive at the winery, they go through a pre-fermentation maceration for 3-5 days at 4-6ºC. The alcoholic fermentation is carried out in stainless steel deposits, as well as the maceration. Once the fermentation has finished, the wine is left to rest with its fine lees for 2 months before being bottled.

 

Peique Tinto Mencía is a juicy, concentrated and aromatic wine. We are in front of the maximum expression of the Mencía, with no frills or makeup.

Tasting notes Peique Tinto Mencía

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.
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.
Sight Intense cherry colored, live meniscus. Nose Good intensity, fruit notes (black) in all its fullness. Taste On the palate is medium body with good acidity, good fruit expression, fine and elegant, with a dramatic final.

Designation of Origin D.O. Bierzo

Winery Peique

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.
