Overview

The Vi de Vila Torroja is Dominik Huber’s “village” wine and among his reds, the only one where he blends Garnatxa Negra with Carinyena. It comes from several vineyards ranging in age from 50–75 years old located around the village of Torroja which are on primarily classic llicorella soils in addition to a portion of the Garnatxa planted on much scarcer limestone clay. The grapes are harvested by hand and layered, whole cluster, into a fermentation tank where the weight of the grapes produce just enough juice to begin fermentation. At this point Dominik lets nature take its course and after a short maceration the wine is transferred to Stockinger foüdres to complete its primary, and malolactic fermentations.
