A hearty blend of Tempranillo (85%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) which has been fermented and aged in concrete tanks to translate the purity of their Navarra fruit without any of the distractive flavour from oak. Pure and juicy with distinctive aromas of Turkish Delight and earth and wonderfully chalky framing from the concrete influences.

Food pairing: stick to Spanish inspired dishes here and you can’t go wrong.

Producer

Self-confessed vineyard explorers and wine dreamers Azul y Garanza are situated across 40 hectares in the heart of Navarra, a mountainous portion of Northern Spain that borders the Basque Country, Rioja and Aragon and whose viticultural history can boast dating back to 2BC. As with many regions in Spain, Navarra’s reputation in the past few decades has struggled to compete with the dominating forces of Rioja but as with any good underdog story, it’s all about who you talk to. Navarra is a great place to grow vines, the extremes of climate and poor quality in the soil mean that hardy vines need to dig deep through the soil to reach the nutrients they need; adding concentration and nuance to the wines produced. The region has also experienced a renaissance in recent years, with many winemakers focussing on crafting lower quantities of high quality, terroir-driven wines to rival the very best wine in production in Spain and at highly competitive price points. Vignerons Maria Barrena and Dani Sanchez of Abril Azul y Garanza are fiercely protective of their Navarra terroir, promoting richer ecosystems by planting trees and native aromatic plants around their vines that nourishes the landscape which in turn produces happier, healthier vines and wonderful wines.
