This is a Certified Biodynamic and Certified Organic wine made of 50% Garnacha Tinta and 50% Tempranillo from Navarsotillo’s 40ha estate in Navarra. Hand harvested, the ‘native fermentation’ of whole berries occurs in stainless steel. Daily pump-overs are used to moderate a cool to warm fermentation and minimise tannin extraction. Garnacha and Tempranillo are then blended to age on their lees until being bottled unfiltered.
A deep ruby colour that leads to aromas of black cherry, pomegranate and juniper. Toasted peppercorn, a signature of Navarra Garnacha, comes through after a moment in the glass, followed by dried thyme and cherry. The palate is fresh, filled with red fruit, but shows its serious side with an earthy mid-palate and noticeable grip on the finish.
