Alt Empordà (vi de l'Albera)
No added sulfites / ØØ
Supple garnacha grows in contrast to gravely granite sands among gnarled olive trees, hearty oaks, and mediterranean shrub in the blustery foothills of l’Albera natural reserve where Barbara and Joan Carles make vivacious and complex living wines from their family estate. Tramuntana wind lashes and bends the garnacha lean and clean as it blows up and over the Pyrenees, imbuing its fruit with limber freshness and perfume as ephemeral as the constantly changing movement that defines its existence. Barbara and Joan Carles orchestrate their vines abiding dance from their ancient farmhouse, anchoring them to earth and place and time through subtle guidance each fall using nothing more than gentle picking, pressing and clean leeway for expression of their singular experience.
