White Wine Guerinda La Roya 2021
Availability: In stock
The wine is produced from a local clone of Grey Grenache (Garnacha Gris) indigenous to the Baja Montaña area in Navarra. Known as Roya, the variety is in the process of being recovered for wine production.
The grapes come from a single parcel, planted with 35-year-old organically farmed vines and situated at 650 metres of altitude.
Harvested by hand in late September, this wine was produced as a Blanc de Noirs, that is, avoiding any contact between the must and the skins. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature for 2-3 weeks.
Naturally stabilized during the winter season, Guerinda La Roya 2021 was gently filtered before its bottling.
This wine does not bear the DO Navarra label because the Roya grape is considered a red variety and the DO regulatory board does not allow to produce white wines with it.
The wine Guerinda La Roya is deep straw with delicate golden reflections.
Elegant and characterful nose, with a prominent citrus note highlighted by aromas of aromatic herbs, forest floor, fennel and hay. This Grey Grenache also shows some mineral and floral overtones.
Crisp and linear, but not bone dry, this wine of Máximo Abete is rather intense and very elegant, with focus, freshness, and a rock-solid acidity. Ripe white fruit, remembrances of ginger, rosemary and lime, and some mineral hints. Long finish.
