Wine Description

The winery is located in the town of Añorbe in the valley called Valdizarbe, which sits on the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains. This is the most northern region of the D.O. Navarra.The grapes for this wine come from two hillside vineyards which are divided by a small road, in an area known locally as Berezabal. 

The vineyards face southwest, and have yields of approximately 1.2 t/acre. The soils are clay-limestone and gravel in composition. This is the only wine at the winery that is barrel fermented. New French oak barrels are used during fermentation, followed by weekly batonnage and aging sur lie for 4 months.
