DENOMINATION OF ORIGIN
DOC Rioja

VINEYARD AREA
Selection of Garnacha vineyards in the Alto Najerilla.

VINEYARDS
BADARÁN: Aventines.

VINE AGE
25 years old, at an altitude of 650 metres above sea level.

SOILS
Mixture of ferrous clay with calcareous clay and a sandy component of degradation. The blend brings agility, fluidity and fruitiness to the wine.

VARIETIES
100% red Garnacha.

ELABORATION
Harvest at optimum aromatic maturity, light pressing in the absence of oxygen and fermentation in stainless steel tanks at low temperature to preserve aromas. Before fermentation is completed, the wine is bottled and the natural sugar from the grapes finishes fermenting in the bottle where it will produce the natural carbonic acidity.

AGEING
Once fermentation is finished, 4 months on its own lees.

ALCOHOL
12,5%.

"Natural sparkling wine made in an ancestral way from fresh grapes with natural acidity, fermented very slowly and rested on lees".

Raúl Tamayo, Nivarius Enologist

By and for the white wine The obsession of the winery is the search for the freshness and longevity of white wines and for this we have the best technology in the production. We vinify each small plot separately, from the entrance of the grapes, either by selection table in boxes of 18 kg or by reception hopper. The way in which the grapes enter the winery depends on their state of health and the destination of the grapes.

One of the most important elements of the winery are the pneumatic inert dams, made with a membrane that injects nitrogen to prevent the must from oxidising. In this way we respect the character of the variety and the peculiarities of the estate.
Production and ageing In a normal year we can have up to 20 different vinifications depending on the variety, estate or area where our grapes come from. In this way we get exactly what we want from our wines, which is the maximum expression of their terroir.

We make almost all of our wines in 3,500 litre oak casks from Normandy with a very light toasting so that the varietal and mineral character of our native varieties produces unique and respectful, complex and expressive wines, which have a great longevity thanks to the extraordinary acidity levels with which we work.
