Oriol Artigas, an Alella native and trained enologist, started his project of making non interventionist wines in 2011. He currently farms a total of 7.5 hectares just north of Barcelona. La Rumbera is comprised of 80% Pansa Blanca and 20% Garnatxa Blanca. The wine is fermented with wild yeasts in 80% stainless steel and 20% old 300 liter barrels, with 2 hours to 2 days skin contact, depending on the maturation of the grape. The wine is then raised on the lees in steel vat for 6 months before being bottled without fining, filtration, or sulfites. Everything about this project is Natural, with no chemicals or additives of any kind. Very limited production!
This is a white wine that combines power and delicacy with a distinct marine character, making it ideal to pair with a wide variety of seafood, especially grilled head-on prawns.
