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.

Alcohol: 13.5%
Serve at 17ºC

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.
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.

Production area D.O. Bierzo

Winery Peique

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".
