Artadi Garnacha Blanca, Navarra, Spain, 2014
"Aromas of gasoline and white grapefruit skins lead to tangy palate with good grip and weight. This tastes waxy, bitter and citrusy, with a hint of tropical fruit. Zesty acidity livens up the finish, which runs fairly long."
100% Garnacha Blanca
100-year-old vines from Navarra result here in a refreshingly acidic white wine.
1985, Laguardia…. A group of vine-growers, village men and women with rooted traditions and their focus on their vineyards and wines, found ARTADI.
In 1992 the Lacalle and Laorden family take control of the project. The obsession for vine growing and the cult to the vineyard led the Artadi growers to discover characteristics that define the personality of unique wines: wines which are a reflection of their origin. That same conviction was the one who brought them to expand their project in 1996 in Navarra (Artazu), in 1999 in Alicante (El Sequé) and in 2015 in Guipúzcoa (Izar-Leku).
They keep alive the viticultural traditions of their ancestors, fighting against the destructive advances that chemistry has introduced into industrialized and disrespectful agricultural management. Artadi aims to preserve the production and the enjoyment of a "living" wine, with feelings and spirituality, integrating nature and the vineyard in our own lives.
This is a grape variety with intense citric aromas and mineral notes, as silex or flint. We find subtle and delicate sensations, spicy notes and a balanced freshness.
This is one of Spains most beloved brands, and the wine quality is always ON POINT!
