La Traca Tinto 2019 "Risky Grapes"
This lovely, easy-drinking red wine comes from a specific vineyard south of Requena, in Valencia, called El Ardal. Planted to sandy clay soils, these old vines (58+ years old) are bush trained and have always been treated Organically.
The grapes are hand-harvested, fermented with native yeasts in stainless and cement tanks, and aged mostly in stainless with a small amount in old foudres for 3 months. The wine was bottled with a drop of SO2.
Blueberry and raspberry on the nose. Succulent texture with lots of black plum and quince fruit. Slight tarry, peppery character, backed by lively acidity and a long, crisp, crunchy finish. This is a fantastic juicy, earthy light red fruited wine, with a beautiful finish that keeps you coming back for more.
