Garnacha / Moscatel blend
A Whole Lot of Rosé 2021
Grape Variety: Garnacha (Grenache), Merlot, Moscatel (Muscat), Vermentino
Producer: Vinyes Tortuga (Dido & Jurriaan)
Region: Rabós, Catalunya, Spain
Wild Scale: 4/5
Winemaking: Organic grapes were sourced from another grower and underwent a week long maceration before fermentation with indigenous yeast. Bottled with no filtration, fining or added sulphur.
This Wine: Pink wine with a great balance of red fruit and refreshing citrus and peach notes. Best served by itself with friends in the sun.
Notes on the Winemaker: Fruita Analogica is the negotiant project (where they buy grapes from other growers to produce the wine) of Vinyes Tortuga aka Dido and Jurriaan. The duo hail from the Netherlands and travelled the world learning winemaking before settling right in the North of Catalunya not far from the French border. They crowdfunded their vineyard purchase and are now on their 3rd vintage making wine that is full of joy. We visited in 2019 and listened to records in their winery whilst tasting samples. Each cuvee has a different reference to one of their favourite musicians.
