Azul y Garanza 2018 Garnacha Naturaleza Salvaje, Navarra, Spain

The Azul y Garanza vineyards begin in the lunar landscaped Bardenas Reales Natural Park. Founders Dani Sánchez, María Barrena and Fernando Barrena work with “landscapes” – not merely vineyards - with each of their plots enjoying as much biological diversity as this harsh climate will allow. The surrounding plants, shrubs, trees, and animal/insect life play as much a part to the success of the grapes as the vines themselves. Winemaking is quite natural – the widespread, almost exclusive use of concrete vats, natural yeasts and gentle hands. 
  • Winemakers: Dani Sánchez, María Barrena and Fernando Barrena
  • Farming: Organic 
  • Varieties: 100% Garnacha 
  • Terroir: Shallow, clay-traced soils, with minimal water, and irregular, almost non-existent rainfall, as well as extreme contrasts in temperature between day and night. Due to these singular geoclimatic conditions, the vines offer a naturally low production of small grapes that have a high concentration and a perfect equilibrium. Certified Farming_Organic, and hand-picked grapes from just north of the Bardenas Reales. Vines are an average age of 40 years old on clay-calcareous at 550 meters.
  • Vinification: The grapes undergo wild yeast fermentation in concrete tanks followed by six months aging in amphora and six months in neutral 300L barrels. Non-interventional/ natural winemaking philosophy. 
  • Alcohol: 13.5% 
  • Tasting Notes: Pure, fresh, and clean-- you may not believe this fits the NATURAL wine category (spoiler: it does). Evolved, generous wild red fruit and herb aromas with cassis sweetness, chocolate, and wild cherry fruit flavors. Wild, natural, and totally drinkable.
