Fedellos do Couto Peixes da Rocha 2017
Bodegas Peixes is the new project of Jesús and Curro, outside D.O. Ribeira Sacra, right in the Ourense massif, with vineyards that are exposed to the cold right to the limit where the grapes can have a good ripening.
The wines produced by Bodegas Peixes are made in a small winery in Seadur. They have 5 hectares of vineyards located in Viana do Bollo, between Valdeorras and Ribeira Sacra. Here, soils are granitic and with shales. They directly cultivate 3 hectares, without using chemical products, with minimum intervention and maximum respect. In the other 2 hectares, they oversee the work of the winegrowers. The result: wines of great elegance and freshness.
Grapes used in Peixes da Rocha come from granitic soils with shales on the cooler outer limits of the Ourense massif. Minimal intervention and maximum respect for the terroir are used when cultivating this captivating wine.
Hard harvested and made with a blend of Godello, Garnacha, Mouratón, Mencía, and Grao Negro, Peixes da Rocha is an elegant vintage intense on the nose, featuring a mineral background with fresh black fruit and floral notes.
