Founded in 1983 under the name Brana Vieja, the company has operated under its new name Bodegas Agronavarra since 2013. Great value wines are now made under the direction of winemaker Pablo Pavez. The wines of the series "Pleno" have become very popular due to their strength and popularity.
The nose has aromas of strawberry, raspberry and redcurrant. There is a subtle creamy edge on the palate and its very well balanced and offers terrific value. Yes it's dry, but it has all the body and character to make it a great food wine too.
A great BBQ wine. Especially good with grilled haloumi skewers.
Garnacha ( Grenache Noir in France ) is naturally at home in the warm and open vineyards of Navarra, where it has become the backbone of many wines. The Garnacha grapes for this light and crisp rose were picked over several days to isolate the grapes best utilised for a rose. The grapes were de-stemmed, and transferred into large steel tanks and fermented on skins at lukewarm temperatures for around 4 days, to attain the correct colour for the regions rules. ( yes, they really do have a colour scale for rose in Navarra ). At this point the now pink juice was racked off to be fermented to dryness in a separate steel tank, whilst the remaining red grape skins and pulp were fermented to dryness and used as 'seasoning' for other red wines. The pink wine was then filtered and bottled early to preserve the freshness, peppery and yet crisp nature of the Garnacha grape.
