When you think about Spanish Wines, usually you think about Rioja. Some conosseurs can tell some other regions like Ribera del Duero or they even ask about Albariño, but how much do you know about the rest of wine regions of Spain?
There is a particular Region, right next to the famous Rioja that inspired many people, like for instance the aclaimed writer Ernest Hemingway, that loved this land, its wine, its people and its traditions. The Region is known as Navarra, and the capital city is the famous Pamplona, that inspired so much Mr. Hemingway that he published a book called "The Sun also Rises" considered by many to be his greatest creations.
That's why we have prepared this pack for you, to help you discover this great reagion by the hand of Bodegas NEKEAS. You will find in this pack:
- 2 bottles of Nekeas Blanco 2018
A great blend of 40% Viura and 60% Chardonnay from the emerging and trending DO of Navarra. As you can see, Chardonnay comes to play with a native grape of Spain (Viura) giving us a great and fresh medium-bodied white wine with beautiful notes of apple and citrus, that shows us how Chardonnay can grow in different locations giving us what it gets from the soil of Navarra.
- 2 bottles of Nekeas Tinto 2017
For this wine, two varieties are set in the blend with 70% Tempranillo, the usual player of any Spanish Wine, and 30% Merlot, a rare and exciting combination of 2 intense grapes that, thanks to the fine hands of the winemaker, are living in a nice harmony together in this blend. The result is a well structured wine with an intense red colour with some blackish tones. In the nose you may find some nice notes of Raspberries and red cherries that are later translated in its flavour in a very fresh and rounded finish.
- 2 bottles of Nekeas Tinto Joven 2018
This wine is a great example of what the Spanish Garnacha has to offer, Made with 50% Tempranillo and 50% Spanish Garnacha from vineyards located on the north-facing slopes of the Valley of Nekeas in the DO of Navarra. The result is a red coloured wine with some purples tones that offers aromas of black fruits and woodlands strawberries. In mouth we get a sweet and smooth beginning with a long and fresh finish.
