Navarra Tinto 'Pasos de San Martín', Bodegas y Viñedos Artazu

 

The ‘village wine’ from San Martín de Unx, Pasos de San Martín is  made from 100% Garnacha from 35-year-old bushvines cultivated organically in clay-limestone at 600 meters of altitude. After manual harvesting and sorting, a pre-fermentative cold maceration took place for two days in open-top tanks.  Fermentation at 10- 25ºC over a period of 10-12 days with daily pigeage and soft pumpovers before going into barrel for malolactic. Aged in fine-grain 500-liter French oak barrels with a light-medium toast for a total of 12 months.

Review:
A round, fruity red with plum, berry and cherry character. Some orange-peel and floral undertones. Full-bodied. Delicious. Drink or hold.
