Vinyer de la Ruca

Banyuls-sur-Mer, Roussillon



Manuel’s masterpiece. From extremely low-yielding vines up to eighty years old planted over schist high in the hills above Banyuls. Before the fermentation has finished, Manuel adds a grape spirit, causing it to stop and allowing the wine to retain its natural sweetness. Aged in old barrels for two years, it is deep, dark and savoury, with incredible structure and length. A remarkable, old-school wine of terroir and tradition that could be from nowhere other than Banyuls-sur-Mer.
