Red Wine Guerinda Navasentero 2019
Availability: In stock
This is the new vintage of Guerinda Navasentero. The name is taken from the Navasentero vineyard, located in the DO Navarra.
This is a quite special Spanish red wine, because it is crafted solely from Graciano, an indigenous Spanish grape that has been being used for many years in traditional Rioja blends because of its high acidity.
Crafted by the Máximo Abete winery, the grapes were harvested by hand and carefully selected. Vinified and fermented in stainless steel tanks, Guerinda Navasentero Graciano 2019 was then transferred into 300-litre French oak barrels, where it was aged for 11 months on its lees.
This is a Crianza red wine which shows the capacity of the Graciano grape to produce interesting varietal red wines.
The red wine Guerinda Navasentero has a very bright, clean, high purple-coloured robe with a crimson rim.
Intense notes of ripe red and black fruit, alongside some floral remembrances, liquorice and a distinctive balsamic character. In the background, this varietal Graciano suggests aromas of cocoa, leather, fine wood and sweet spices.
Fresh and well-balanced, this red wine from Máximo Abete has a tense acidity, smooth tannins and a long, delicately toasted finish with remembrances of wild berries, some mineral undertones and some balsamic remembrances.
