White Navarra 2015
Winery: Ricitos de Oro
Varietal: 100% White Grenache from 40+-year-old vines. Estate-grown, hand-harvested.
Tasting Notes: Straw yellow, bright. Fresh citric aromas with hints of mint and fennel.
Ricitos de Oro means “Goldilocks.” The winery was established in San Martín de Unx, Navarra, in 1914. Vines growing on the land date back to the Medieval Age; many of the vines found today are more than 100 years old.
The vineyard enjoys an exceptional location marked by the confluence of Atlantic, Continental, and Mediterranean climates. The proximity of the Bay of Biscay, the influence of the Pyrenees, and the temperate influence of the Ebro Valley are all key factors in giving this land its unique microclimate, perfect in which to create elegant, balanced and fresh wines.
