Vinyer de la Ruca

Banyuls-sur-Mer, Roussillon

Orcio Judas


Carignan from a fifty year old vineyard planted over sand and stone northwest of Perpignan in Latour-de-France. ‘Judas’ refers to the fact that the vines worked once by a tractor, this amounts to cheating in Manuel’s book! This ferments on skins for two weeks, is de-stemmed by hand and pressed off into a single 200 litre amphorae for 9 months. A singular, vivid expression of this wonderful grape.
