About Finca Casa Balaguer Alicante Tragolargo Tinto

Finca Casa Balaguer Alicante Tragolargo Tinto has forest fruits on the nose such as blackberries and strawberries with some hints of eucalyptus and licorice. Smooth on the palate with sweet, mature tannins. Balanced acidity and freshness make this an enjoyable easy drinking style. 100% Monastrell from estate grapes grown organically (with some biodynamic techniques) in Villena, Alicante on sandy-saline soils. Hand harvested followed by a strict selection process. The grapes are then cold-soaked for 3 days. 1/3 of the grapes go through whole-cluster carbonic maceration and fermentation, with native yeasts. The rest is macerated and spontaneously fermented with skins and seeds for 7 days. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, and zero SO2.

About Finca Casa Balaguer

Does the name Rafa Bernabe ring a bell? If so, then you may already be familiar with Finca Casa Balaguer as it was his estate before selling it to his right-hand man, Andres Carull. Before anything, maybe we should start by introducing Andres and how he met Rafa. Both from the town of Villena in Alicante where his family owned vineyards and made wine, Andres had his first revelatory sip of natural wine in a bar in St. Emilion in Bordeaux. Not the first place you’d think of for natural wine, but that’s how the story goes. Taken back by that cloudy glass of wine he was served, he wondered if anyone back home was making wines like that and of course, all roads led him to Rafa Bernabe. For those of you who don’t know who Rafa is, well we could say he’s the father of natural wine in Valencia.

They worked side by side for about 3 years when Rafa started to have some health issues and decided it was time for him to move on from winemaking. As an idolized international winemaker, he had offers from international buyers but preferred to keep it local and find a fellow native who would feel and understand his land the same way he did. With that in mind, it was pretty obvious who was first in line. With little to no financial resources, Andres’ first reaction was to reject the offer but after days of not sleeping, he became determined to find a way. He approached family, friends, and banks, of course, until finally gathering enough money to buy the estate from Rafa.
