Ref: ASEG181
Red  |  Still  |  14.5% ABV

An exciting, if difficult to memorize and pronounce, new name in Navarra.Luis Gutierrez

Aseginolaza & Leunda are Jon and Pedro, two school friends from the Basque Country currently living in Navarra. They are environmental biologists but have become crazy about one thing: old vine Grenache! Once they have found ancient – and often forsaken – unirrigated, bush-vines, they set about rehabilitating the vineyard without recourse to either herbicides or to systemic pesticides. Their philosophy is equally simple: maximum respect for the environment combined with minimal intervention in the winery.

Tasting Notes

N.B. This is 100% Grenache from a tiny vineyard right at the northern extremes of latitude for ripening this variety.
I am met by aromas that are instantly very floral: a veneer for beautiful, slightly creamy red fruit. It goes in the mouth cool, a touch creamy, but pure, with upright, tangy grip. It’s an incisive thing in its structure, sustained and lively and really floral. Yet it is also really firm at the core within that very pretty fruit. Loving this… Bowes Wine original note

In fact, they also told me someone had mentioned that it could feel like a Barolo, and indeed, it does (roses and tar)! Very unusual, personal Garnacha. It should develop nicely in bottle.Luis Gutierrez

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
