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.
This delicious and delicate Garnacha is unlike many overripe examples of the variety from Spain. Similar in style to a Pinot Noir, it is light and fresh, despite its alcohol content.
