Azul y Garanza 2019 Viura Blanc, Navarra, Spain [1 Litre bottle]
Azul y Garanza 2019 Viura Blanc, Navarra, Spain [1 Litre bottle!]
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.
Varieties: 100% Viura
Terroir: From the vineyards of Murillo & San Isidro del Pinar, located just north-west of the Bardenas Reales. Certified organic and handpicked grapes from vines that are an average age of 15 years old on clay-calcareous at 400 meters.
Vinification: The grapes undergo a 16 day, wild yeast fermentation in concrete tank followed by brief aging in stainless steel until bottling and release.
