Fresh, different, aromatic
Tasting notes of black fruits, currants, raspberry.
The Wine: Fruita Analògica Red
It is a light red wine, with only three days of contact with the skin, 100% Cabernet Franc. Macerated only three days before pressing. About a quarter of it is aged in old oak barrels. They add a small part of white wine to the final mix for a fresh touch.
The Producer: Vinyes Tortuga
Dido and Jurriaan fell in love with wine making while traveling the world. They spent 4 years working for the winemakers they loved before finally settling in Alt Emporda, in the north of Catalonia. They found a small Catalan farmhouse with 9.5 hectares of vineyards and, quite ambitiously, they collectively financed enough money to buy it all, plus some old winemaking equipment. They made their first harvest in 2018 and every day they discover more and more about the land, the climate and the terroirs in their new home and they will surely gain more and more knowledge with each new vintage. The vineyards are located 20 km from the sea, and the influence of the sea here is strong. The salty sea breeze brings humidity, while the force of the Tramuntana from the Pyrenees is cool and dry. Although it can sometimes be destructive, it is essential to prevent mold and mildew. The soil here is almost identical to that of the Priorat, the famous licorella, a mixture of slate and graphite. The vineyard has a relatively low elevation, 150 m at its peak. Dido and Jurriaan are dedicated to making wine in the purest possible way. They don't pump their wines, opting to move them solely by gravity. They never filter and try to avoid the use of sulfur, using only very small amounts if necessary. They have recently surprised us with the acquisition of one of these old cooperatives, Cooperativa Sant Julià, renamed Fruita Analógica. It will be your "négoce" and your test bench so as not to stop surprising us. They are crazy about music and all their wines are named after songs.

What is natural wine
Natural winemaking has become a movement similar to a revolution, a nemesis of the industrialization and homogenization of wine in the last three decades. Natural wine producers are at the forefront of this movement, rejecting industrial winemaking techniques and the excessive use of pesticides, fungicides, herbicides or fertilizers in the vineyard. Perhaps even more important, natural wine should be viewed as an agricultural product where agriculture is an essential part. Agricultural conditions, labor rights, sustainability and ethical practices throughout the supply chain are now at the center of the natural wine discourse.
Why should I try natural wine?
Natural wine is probably the most fascinating wine on the market. Discovering natural wines is made even more exciting by the fact that each vintage is different and tastes different.
