CASE OF 6 BOTTLES
Picture a region of breathtaking beauty and peacefulness, not unlike the majestic beauty of Rioja Alavesa. Add in a speckled, patchwork of spartan vineyards and dusty roads, where the only traffic jams are those created by sheep crossing the road, and you have the Baja Montaña region in Navarra. Fruit is sourced from old vineyards, a mix of bush-vine (en vaso) and trellised, around the villages of Leaché and Aibar in the very eastern reaches of Navarra. Later ripening than in Rioja, the grapes possess a delicious freshness.
Hand-picked and vinified using selected wild ferment and whole bunch parcels, the musts are handled gently to avoid over-extraction and retain fruit. Post primary fermentation, the wine is pressed to predominantly older oak in order to preserve the wild, energetic fruit profile that defines this region.
Wonderfully intense, with bright red fruits, hints of spice and beautiful texture. There is a coolness to the fruit set against the irrepressible generosity of Grenache.
Lamb or goat seem the most appropriate and the brisk, energetic style of the wine works well with the unctuous, sweet meat. Also char grilled veg and meat
