El Rumbero is all Garnatxa Negra in 2021, from vines that range from 15-25 years old, in the Alella appellation just north of Barcelona. Whole cluster fermentation for a week, then pressed into stainless steel and aged 11 months. No filtration or clarification and no sulfites added. Light red with a touch of spice, making it great with grilled foods. Enjoy slightly chilled.
Although Oriol Artigas has only been making wines for around 10 years, he has become well known in natural wine circles, and his wines have wowed drinkers across the globe. Situated in the small town of Alella, just north of Barcelona, Oriol has been working with sandy, granitic vineyards overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, mostly planted to the local Pansa Blanca grape, which seems to be accepted as a relative of or a local version of Xarel-lo.
