Tasting Notes

Made from 100% Tempranillo grown on the fertile soils of Navarra - this soft and easy red offers a nose of cassis and mulberry, leading to a soft and rounded palate which is smooth and medium to light bodied on the finish. A great all round red with mass appeal.

Food Matches

Simple Tapas dishes including olives, Manchego cheese and sundried tomatoes.

Vinification

A youthful and appealing Tempranillo from the higher situated vineyards of Navarra. The grapes are all machine picked and the grapes de-stemmed before storing for 2 days at cool temepratures to retain freshness. The grapes are then crushed and macerated on skins in temperature controlled steel tanks at a warm 27 degrees - the ferment lasting for around 24 days with regular pumping over of the juice to preserve the warm and open nature of the fruit and build some appealing tannins. This wine is membrane filtered before bottling to ensure natural brightness.
