The Tinto 'Peixe da Estrada' from the Galician winery Peixes takes the form of a juicy and dynamic expression, an artisanal interpretation of the mountain village of Viana do Bolo, located in the southeast of the region. It is an articulate assemblage of several varieties, both black and white berry, cut together as per tradition. The bodega was born in 2017 from the passion of Jesus Olivares and Curro Bareño, who purchased a number of old vineyards with the intention of enhancing this lesser-known wine-growing area of Galicia. The name "Peixe da Estrada" literally means "street fish," in reference to the time Curro and Jesus spent in the field meticulously tending the different vineyards.
Peixes Tinto 'Peixe da Estrada' comes from a complex blend of the indigenous grape varieties Mencia, Mouraton, Grao Negro, Garnacha Tinta, Bastardo, Godello, Doña Blanca and Palomino. The vineyards, located about 800 meters above sea level, rest on granitic soils with mica and orange quartz. The harvest is done entirely by hand and the grapes are then mash whole in plastic vats where spontaneous alcoholic fermentation takes place, accompanied by as much as 2 months of maceration on the skins. Subsequently, the mass is transferred to used French oak barrels where it remains to mature for a year.
