Characteristics of Pyjama
Pyjama is a red wine from the D.O Bierzo produced by the Demencia de Autor winery. This is a single variety wine made with the Mencía grape, the most commonly cultivated variety of the region.
The grapes used to produce Pyjama come from vineyards located in the towns of Villadecanes and Villafranca del Bierzo. The vines have an average age of 50 years, and are cultivated on low bush vines. The vineyards and vines are cultivated using in a manner respectful to the environment, with no herbicides or pesticides being used.
The vinification process is carried out in 2,500 litre capacity tanks, which begins with alcoholic fermentation first taking place at a controlled temperature of 25º. The winemaking process is also carried out with native yeasts from the same vineyard itself.
Pyjama is then bottled and placed onto the market following a brief ageing, which lasts for 5 months in second and third year French oak barrels with its fine lees. During this process, 3 rackings are carried out to help aerate the wine and achieve a perfect roundness.
The Demencia de Autor winery, founded in 2006, is a specialist with the Mencía grape variety and works with small scale old vineyard plots. Demencia, de 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.

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".
