Golden yellow colour. Intense and aromatic nose, ample and sweet in the mouth with delicious viscosity. Long and seductive, showing candied orange peel, honeysuckle, peach and honey characters - also with notes of hay, tarragon and apricot. Clean and fresh acidity on the finish.
Producer DetailsThe Bodega de Sarria lies on a large and beautiful estate in the hills above Puenta la Reina, near Pamplona. Vineyards cover 210 hectares, mainly south facing slopes at 400-500m altitude, planted mainly with Tempranillo, Graciano (the most extensive plantings of the variety in Spain), Garnacha, Cabernet, Merlot, Mazuelo and Chardonnay.
Founded in 1953, Sarria was one of the pioneers of quality winemaking in Navarra but standards slipped until the current owners, the bank of Navarra, put a huge investment programme in place in 2001. Mature vineyards are being revitalised, new vineyards planted and the cellars have been totally overhauled.
The range excels in all areas - the fresh, unoaked 'entry level' trio, complex and spicy Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva and the outstanding, strikingly modern single vineyard Vinedo selection.
In The VineyardThis naturally sweet wine is made from Moscatel grapes, from vines located in the Ribera Baja region of Southern Navarra.
In The WineryAfter crushing, the grapes undergo a low-pressure pressing process to obtain the free-run juice. The fermentation stops naturally when the desired sugar concentration has been reached.
Food RecommendationsIdeal for foie gras, cured cheeses and desserts in general.
