Navascues Enologia is the personal project of Contino and Zorzal’s head winemaker, Jorge Navascués, who is forging an impressive career as one of Spain’s leading winemakers. From DO Cariñena in Aragon, Jorge focuses on Macabeo, Garnacha and Cariñena, creating smooth, yet complex reds and aromatic, expressive Macabeo. Despite his own project still being in its infancy, the wines have already started to attract attention from critics around the world with Robert Parker paying particular attention to what Jorge is developing.
Ripe red fruit dominates on the nose and palate, with a slightly savour character on the palate. Medium-bodied, with a lasting and satisfying finish and mouthfilling texture.
