Orquida Negra Joven is made with grapes from the winery’s own estate, cultivated following integrated farming methods. The vineyards are on average 20 years old and lie on rolling slopes with sandy, silty, rocky soil. The 2019 harvest in Navarra offered lower yields than the previous year. After a complicated year with a dry winter and a cold and stormy spring, the summer was warm and enjoyed low rainfall, enabling complete and homogenous ripening. The grapes boasted an impeccable sanitary condition, awarding the production of wines with great possibilities.
Tempranillo 60% and grenache 40%.
Alcoholic fermentation lasted 15 days with daily pigeage and remontage. Temperature was strictly controlled to never exceed 26ºC. Malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks before the final coupage. The wine was then clarified
COLOUR: Intense cherry red, with high intensity.
NOSE: Aromas of ripe, red fruits, clean and intense.
PALATE: Moreish palate and balanced flavour. Fresh and fruity with a silky finish.
This wine expresses the origin of the land; it is made with exquisite care to define the youth and strength of the Tempranillo and Grenache varietals grown at Pagos de Araiz. This wine pairs perfectly with any dish in the Mediterranean diet.
