Vinyer de la Ruca, Judas de Tonka 2017
Vinyer de la Ruca is at the very pinnacle of natural wine production on the planet at this time. This is as much a socio-political statement and challenge laid down to the modern world as it is a Domaine producing some of the most satisfying, mineral red wines of the Roussillon.
Deep yet dancing Grenache from the higher altitude vineyards in Latour de France, schist. The Grenache comes from a fifty year old vineyard planted over sand and stone northwest of Perpignan in Latour-de-France. This was picked, de-stemmed and pressed all within a couple of days and aged for a year in a single barrique. A wine of real elegance.
