Barranco Oscuro La Traviesa 2014

Slightly saline, slightly honeyed, distinctly toasty with hints of tropical fruit, La Traviesa Blanco is a perfect choice for Chardonnay lovers looking for a detour, or anyone interested in exploring the unique and expressive wines of Granada. No sulfur added.

Since 1979, Manual Valenzuela makes wine in the high mountains of Contraviesa, more specifically in Alpujarra, in Granada, Andalusia. At that time, he was the pioneer in planting single grape plots also introducing foreign quality grapes varieties and recovering ancient Varietals like the unknown Vigiriega. After about 10 years of natural winemaking, the winery was certified organic by Spainish regulations. For Manuel's philosophy and taste, the Organic Certification is not rigorous enough to make sure the wines show identity, that's why he's declined the certification in the past years. His son, Lorenzo, is also part of the non-intervencionist/natural winemaking process. The fact the vineyard is basically in the clouds (the highest in Europe - about 1.300m of altitude) makes their wines very unique. A dry and breezy climate and a schist composed and poor soil are the key fact for such a finesse and identity in the resultant wines.
