El Truc Negre
Grapes - 100% Ull de Llebre (Tempranillo) Country - Spain Region - Penedes ABV - 10.5% This is a fresh, easy drinking Tempranillo that shows wonderfully crunchy red fruit. Winemaker Jot Camps loves his country. The rugged, terroir of the Massis del Garraf to the south west of Barcelona. Here the soils are thin (maximum 1m of depth) and the underlying rock is primarily limestone. This ensures that all of his wines have a characteristic acidity and liveliness. He works small plots of vines following strict Organic (certified) and Biodynamic philosophies and believes in 360o farming, with not just vines planted but fruit tree, olive groves, animals and other wildlife, creating biodiversity. The Tempranillo undergoes 10 days of carbonic maceration followed by a soft press before a malolactic fermentation is done. 100% natural fruit, no additions, yet wonderfully clean.
