Aurkitu Garnacha Blanca

Aurkitu Garnacha Blanca 2021


Baja Montaña, Spain

Producer: deAlto Rioja y Más

Aurkitu means 'to find' in Basque. 

Picture a region of breathtaking beauty and peacefulness, not unlike the majestic beauty of Rioja Alavesa, where the old bush vine vineyards gently nudge themselves up into the foothills of the Sierra Cantabria. Add in a speckled, patchwork of spartan vineyards and dusty roads, where the only traffic jams are those created by sheep crossing the road, and you have the Baja Montaña region in Navarra.

In the cool of the higher altitude vineyards, Garnacha Blanca thrives – producing fruit capable of producing deliciously aromatic, textural whites. For Aurkitu, we night harvest Garnacha Blanca before it is cool fermented to retain the refreshing, energetic fruit before extended time on lees to build texture and a nicely rounded mouthfeel. The further addition of a little old vine, barrel aged Viura just adds the pithy palate, length and finesse.
