Tucked away in the mountainous north of Navarra, you’ll find tiny plots of old vines that have been passed down the family line for generations. But times are changing. These steep terraced vineyards have to be worked by hand and yields are extremely low. Hard work and expensive to maintain, many are simply being abandoned. Fortunately, winemaker Gonzalo Celayeta has stepped in to help. He’s rescued a collection of these once-forgotten vineyards and restored them to their former glory. International Wine Challenge gold medal winner 2018 Rarely seen, Unsi Blanco is made from 100% Garnacha Blanco and aged for just six months in French oak This nearly abandoned terroir isn’t just home to vines and where scrub vegetation (thyme, rosemary, lavender, juniper and carrasco) surrounds the vineyards, the garnacha expresses its full potential . Intensely golden with greenish reflections, bright and vivid in the glass.Medium intensity aroma, very fresh, varietal character and aniseed: citrus, notes of fennel and undertones of white fruit. Fresh, lively and rich, with good structure and long finish. Try with pork, barbecued white meat or a burger, delicious!
