Vinyer de la Ruca

Banyuls-sur-Mer, Roussillon



This comes from a small parcel of Grenache Gris planted over schist in the hills above Banyuls-sur-Mer. This wine was actually made by Manuel’s assistant Francesco and is a wonderful effort. The fruit spent just a few hours on skins before being pressed off to old barrels for a year of rest. The terroir has lent this wine the most incredible texture. A deep shade of ruby, it is compact and elegant with red fruits and an intense, stony minerality.
