Gonzalo Celayeta Wines, San Martín de Unx, Navarra
In 2006 Gonzalo Celayeta started work as a winemaker at Bodegas San Martín, within the subarea of Baja Montaña in the DO Navarra. He trained at EVENA (Navarra’s Viticulture and Oenology Centre), and launched his own project in 2004. Focusing on Garnacha, his production is very low producing between 10,000 to 13,000 bottles, which include his white, rosé and red wines. Unusually, the ‘El Caserio’ is barrel fermented in Spanish chestnut wood.
Navarra Rosado ‘La Huella de Aitana’ – 100% Garnacha. Vineyards located in the transition zone between the subzones of Ribera Alta and Baja Montaña, in the lower part of the municipality of San Martín de Unx.Terroir: 400m of altitude, soils of average fertility, clay - calcareous. Fermented in barrels and matured on lees (4 months in American Oak)
Raspberry pink color, with sharp violet reflections, bright and vivacious.In aroma it is intense and of great complexity: good assembly between toasted and spicy notes of the barrel with the sweet and fruity character of the Garnacha. The palate is a powerful pink, enveloping, good structure, with a number of fruity and toasted nuances. Despite its sweet taste in the mouth, it maintains the right freshness with an acidity that gives it a perfect balance and predicts a good aging in the bottle.
Grape: 100% Garnacha
