The Wine: Esprit Attila 2018

La Sorga Esprit Attila is a natural wine made from a blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Alicante Bouschet farmed organically in Languedoc-Roussilon, Southern France. Unfined, unfiltered, no added sulfites. Medium body red wine, concentrated with some umami, black peppercorn, and deli meat. Epic wine by the wildest of all.

The Producer: La Sorga

Born in Foix, Ariège, a small town in the Pyrénées, Anthony Tortul founded La Sorga in 2008. Originally aiming to produce a range of natural white wines from the finest vineyards in the Languedoc, he visited organic and biodynamic vineyards all over the region. However, the more he saw, the more he fell in love, and soon he was committed to making reds, whites, pink bubbles and sometimes, late-harvest wines.

Currently, Anthony Tortul works with nine vineyards that are spread throughout Aude and Herault, totaling 25ha. The soils here are as varied as the geology, including calcareous clay, shale, basalt, sand, and granite, as is the climate, which ranges from hot and Mediterranean to mountainous and hilly. Planted to more than 20 varieties, including Terret Blanc and Gris, Cinsault, Grenache, Aramon, Carignan, Aubun, Mauzac, Vermentino, Ugni Blanc, Sauvignon, Mourvèdre and more, the vines are grown organically (with 50% farmed biodynamically), and attended to by Anthony. He selects the vines, generally using the same vines each year, as he advises on all farming techniques and harvests together with the growers. “I love vineyards, especially very old vineyards,” he said, “that’s why I work with a lot of little fields with a lot of old varieties.”

Manually harvesting his fruit into 15kg boxes, Tortul works with whole bunches and does not control the temperatures of his fermentations, all of which are done separately before blending. Working with vines that are at least 50-years-old and up to 110-years-old, Anthony’s yields are very concentrated (15-23 hl/ha in very generous years!), and require long aging in the tank.

“The aim is to stick to the terroir,” said Anthony, “For me, natural means nothing added. If there are additives, you cannot say that [the wine] is natural…I prefer to stop making wines than putting additives in my wines.” (source: T. Edward)

Shipping & Returns

WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR HEAT-RELATED ISSUES. WE OFFER ICE-PACKS AS ONE OF OUR SHIPPING OPTIONS. PLEASE SELECT THAT OPTION SHOULD YOU THINK THAT THERE COULD BE HEAT-RELATED ISSUES.

Stress Free Shipping

At Primal Wine we like to be transparent about everything we do. When it comes to buying products online, shipping is the most important aspect, and that’s why we take great care in shipping and handling your order using only 100% recycled packaging material. We don't ship to: LA, KS, MS, AL, WI, KY, NH, UT, SD, MI, AR.

Re-shipping

If a package gets returned to us after three failed delivery attempts, we can only re-ship the wine upon payment of a re-shipping fee, which will be determined based on quantity and shipping address. Shipping wine is extremely expensive, we are sorry about this, but we have no other choice. Please make sure there's always someone at the address you enter as your shipping address.

Canceling an Order

If you'd like to cancel an order after it's been shipped, we can do so upon payment of a small cancelling fee – the amount depends on how big the order is. Carriers charge us a lot of money to recall a package en-route.

Important Compliance Requirements

UPS and other carriers we might occasionally use can only deliver wine to customers who are 21 years or older.

Important COVID Update

UPS and FedEx declared that in order to protect their workers and customers, they no longer require a signature on delivery. This does not mean they will drop a wine box at your door. UPS delivery workers will make sure the person receiving the wine is 21 years or older, and will ask for his/her name - only then do they deliver the package.

Shipping Rates and Options

An important premise: wine bottles are heavy – about 3 pounds each – and shipping is expensive! Primal Wine is not backed by venture capital money – we proudly are a mom and pop independent online store – and we must charge shipping on all orders under a certain amount, otherwise we wouldn’t be in business. However, we try our best to offer you very competitive shipping rates and frequent free shipping discount. Please subscribe to our newsletter to stay in the loop!

Return Policy

If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact us via e-mail at hello@primalwine.com between 9 am and 5 pm Pacific Standard Time, Monday through Sunday, we would like to understand and try to solve your concerns. Returning wine is not allowed by law, and so we might make arrangements for a refund if appropriate
