Bodegas Navajas

Bodegas Navajas is a family-owned winery in the village of Navarrete, Rioja Alta. Founded in 1918 each generation has been producing quality wines. The modern facilities include three ageing cellars for 10,000 barrels and a bottle ageing cellar for 200,000 bottles, both of which are equipped with the latest technology. What sets Navajas apart from many other Rioja producers is its attention to detail during every stage of the process, from monitoring the 150 ha of their growers' vineyards in Rioja Alta, to hand-harvesting grapes and vinifying it in a new, state-of-the-art winery

A delightful rich ruby colour with aromas of soft fruits, plums and vanilla. Full of juicy plum flavours with hints of strawberry on the palate. Silky, smooth and complex
An ideal accompaniment to red meat, game or strong cheeses
Made from hand-picked grapes selecteed from plots belonging both to the bodega and other growers. Traditional method of de-stemming is used. Fermentation takes place naturally at controlled temperatures, great care being taken to ensure that the potential achieved in the vineyard is reflected in the wine, and, on its transfer to barrel. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is clarified and filtered. It is then placed in American oak barrels, where it remains for 12 months. After this barrel ageing, it is then bottled and aged in the bottle cellar until it reaches the correct balance for its release onto the market.
