Vinyes Tortuga Juicy
Grapes: Garnatxa, Merlot
Vinyes Tortuga is a biodynamic estate set up in 2018 by young winemaking couple Dido Voorma and Jurriaan Morsink who met while working in the South African natural winemaking hotbed of Swartland. Their vines in Girona are within view of the Mediterranean and the coastal influence on their wines is noticeable in the surprising freshness and sea spray notes they exhibit.
Juicy is a pet nat made from whole bunch fermented Garnatxa and Merlot and expresses all the fleshy, generous fruit flavours you can expect from those varieties. Aged for 4 months in old oak to round the tannins out, it's silky and smooth with very fine bubbles.
