Nacho Gonzales works out of a tiny cellar in the town of Larouco that he rents from friends. He produces only 300 cases annually, a number he is happy with, as it allows him to remain in touch with both his vineyards and his wines. O Trancado comes from an old vineyard which Nacho inherited from his grandmother, named after the area where it is planted. All grapes are hand harvested, wild fermented and raised for 6 months before being bottled without finning, filtration or added SO2. this is an intensely complex wine with wild rustic personality.
Grapes: Garnacha Tintorera* and Mencia
Soil: Granite and clay with Atlantic climate
Farming: Organic with biodynamic practices
Pairing: Fatty meats and wild game
* "Garnacha Tintorera is very common, especially in north-west Spain. However it is not Garnacha at all, but rather Alicante Bouschet. A distinctive feature is that it is one of the rare varieties to have colored flesh, what is known as a teinturier for the way it stains the wine. Thus it delivers deeply colored in Spain, mainly in Castilla-La Mancha and Galicia" - Sarah Jane Evans, MW, The Wines of Northern Spain
