O Trancado 2020

£27.00

A Wine That

speaks of memories; of familial and unconditional love. Since being planted, the vines have always been tended organically and the winemaker feels it is his responsibility to continue nature’s work in the cellar. That means zero meddling: this is pure fermented grape juice. It tastes like going foraging: of wild berries and herbs; sage, bramble fruit and a touch of pepper.

Garnacha Tintorera
Mencía

Where and How?

The grapes for this wine come from the ancient vineyard that Nacho inherited from his grandmother, which is named O Trancado. Organically tended, it is planted to around 70% Garnacha Tintorera — a red-fleshed offspring of Garnacha — and 30% Mencía.

The grapes were destemmed and foot stomped, after which the juice fermented naturally in 400L tinajas (Spanish amphorae) and old oak barrels, in which the wine was aged for six months before being bottled unfined, unfiltered and without sulfites. The wine was also aged for another six months before release.

The Winemaker

​Ignacio Gonzalez, who goes by the name of Nacho, used to work as both a vegetable & fruit farmer and gardener. When his grandmother passed away, leaving him a parcel of old vines named O Trancado, he instinctively felt that it was his duty to take care of them. In turn, this meant farming them organically just as his grandmother had, and just as he had learnt on the farms. The notion of selling the plot or of working with chemicals never even came into the equation. ⁣​⁣The same year, he began to discover other old vineyards in the area; whose fate was uncertain and which were likely to be ripped out to make way for simple clones of easy-to-sell Godello. If this happened, all of the genetic material belonging to the old vines would be lost forever. Nacho didn’t want to let that happen, so he took those vines on too. Amongst them are the varieties Palomino, Garnacha Tintorera, Mencía, Godello, Sumoll, Doña Branca and the very rare Mouratón.⁣​⁣
