Description

Lerga used to be a village of historic importance for Garnacha from Navarra. Sadly, almost all of the vineyards have long disappeared. Fate smiled upon us when we met Gonzalo, whose family has been heroic in caring for these old parcels instead of abandoning them. We feel a responsibility to interpret everything that these incredible vines have experienced through this wine and are excited to share it. Long live Lerga, GO LERGA! It is a complex vintage, marked by a spring with higher temperatures than normal and above all, with very high relative humidity for a long time so there was a high risk for fungi attack such as mildew, which needs very specific conditions for their development. In our case, the early strategy worked very well, there was an extra effort in the vineyard management, It was a year of being very aware in the vineyard every day with the final result of a very fresh and good vintage. Blend of the different Garnacha plots from Lerga village. Fermentation in concrete vats, ageing in concrete vats and 500-liters French oak barrels (2 years used). Clear appearance with medium intensity & ruby colour wine. High intensity nose with fresh aromas of black fruit such us blackberry, blackcurrant, black pepper, cedar and earthy notes. Palate is dry and fresh, with soft tannins and a medium body, black fruit flavours, mineral hints and a long finish. Ideal accompaniment for cured ham, stews, game and meat dishes. Serve at a temperature between 16 º and 18 ºC.
