Navarra is the region directly east of Rioja in Northern Spain. It is drier and tends to have higher diurnal temperature range than it's more famous neighbour so while often the grape varieties grown are similar, the wines produced are quite different and there is much less use of oak.

Azul y Garanza's vineyards are located in the influence area of the Bardenas Reales desert, the biggest desert in Europe. The very poor and arid clay- calcareous soil, the dry weather and the big contrast of temperature between the day and the night provide the grapes with high concentration and a perfect balance. 

As well as wine, Navarra produces fantastic vegetables and salad crops so try drinking this with some simply prepared veg or, in the spring, some green or white asparagus.

This is Garnacha Blanca fermented on skins in open fermenters for ten days before being pressed and the juice transferred to amphora to finish fermentation and for 6 months on fine lees before bottling without fining or filtration and a tiny dash of sulphites. Beautifully complex and textural, pretty easy going though and approachable. Peach skin, herbal and long.
