Navajas Sin Crianza Rioja Blanco

Navajas Sin Crianza Rioja Blanco the nose has delicate fruits, clear and fresh with vegetables overtones.

On the palate it is light, fresh and well-balanced with an intense and permanent finish.

Navajas Sin Crianza Rioja Blanco – Macabeo (or Viura in Rioja) is a white wine grape.

The grape is used on either side of the Pyrenees, in the north and east of Spain and the southernmost reaches of France.

A relatively versatile grape, it is used in still, sparkling, dry and sweet wines.

Macabeo used in Navajas Sin Crianza Rioja Blanco wine can be fresh, floral and aromatic when harvested sufficiently early.

Aged in stainless steel, honeyed and nutty when aged in oak, it is harvested slightly later and is crystal clear with a hint of straw.

Background:-

A family winery founded in 1918 as Bodegas Arjona, in 1983 the Navajas family become the owners and changed its name to Bodegas Navajas.

The year 2000 was a turning point in the Bodega’s history, they invested in enlarging and improving the winery.

New cellars with a new barrel-aging area and new state-of-the-art technology were also introduced.

Navajas family believe that the quality of the wine begins in the vineyards.

They monitor and control the vineyards which belong to their growers in Rioja Alta and Baja  Bodegas Navajas

Navajas use some of the finest fruit from Rioja’s best vineyards, Rioja made here is quintessential,  soft, round and oaky.

Bodegas Navajas started life as Bodegas Ariona, founded in 1918 outside the small town of Navarrete in La Rioja Alta.

The Navajas family became majority shareholders in 1983 and changed the name to reflect the family name

Antonia Navajas Senior built the first Navajas bodega at that time, now replaced with a state-of-the-art facility by his son Antonio Jr.

Here, the wines are fermented in stainless steel tanks before ageing in new oak barrels.

They used to sell on the fruit to the big names including CVNE but now, wisely, have decided to keep it for themselves.

Unsurprisingly the Rioja made here is quintessential – soft, round and oaky.

The approachability of Antonio’s wines, which combine trademark fresh fruit and clean oak characters, is what makes them so popular.

All the red wines are 80-85% tempranillo with garnacha and mazuelo (aka carignan) making up the balance. The white is predominantly viura.

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy 2020

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.

Fermentation was controlled at between 18-20 degrees to preserve the precious aromas.
