Details

The Máximo Abete winery presents the second vintage of Guerinda La Roya, a very original Spanish white wine from the DO Navarra.

Interestingly, this organic white wine is a single varietal Grey Grenache (Garnacha Gris), produced from a local clone indigenous to the Navarra low mountain range. Known as Roya, it is currently in the process of being recovered for wine production.

The grapes come from a single, organically grown vineyard planted with 35-year-old vines 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 cold stabilized during the winter season, Guerinda La Roya 2018 was gently filtered before its bottling.

Incidentally, 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.

 

Additional Information

Appearance

This organic white wine from Navarra has a bright, pale yellow colour. Guerinda La Roya shows some delicate golden tinges.

Nose

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.

Palate

Crisp and linear, but not bone dry, Guerinda La Roya by 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.

Our personal opinion

Faultless and seductive, Guerinda La Roya 2018 is excellent without food, and also accompanying oriental cuisine and pasta dishes.
