Bernabeleva Navaherreros Tinto Garnacha 2016
6 PACK BUY .. Grenache from Madrid.
Bernabeleva is based in the Madrid highlands at San Martín de Valdeiglesias and produces deep, perfumed, incredibly mineral Garnacha based reds and textured, savoury and extract rich whites. José Luis Mateo summed it up best when he said, “Of all the producers around Madrid, for me he is the best. His wines have the most finesse”.
Navaherrerros is the ‘village’ Grenache (100%), sourced from a range of the estate’s single vineyards. Through different soils, orientations, microclimates, Marc Isart is aiming to bottle the ‘spirit’ of the San Martín de Valdeiglesias area. The age of the vines range from 40 to 80-years-old, and vinification takes place in large format wood, stainless steel and concrete tanks, depending on the qualities of each site in each vintage. Some whole bunches are retained, again proportionate with the style of the vintage, and the wine is bottled without fining or filtering. The minimal oak influence means that purity and red berry freshness take the lead. Flaunting the Pinotesque side of the mountain Garnacha’s personality, this is a super sophisticated wine for the price, with a super pale colour, soaring perfume of red fruits, violets and something like hot rocks and a gentle yet persistant structure from the 35-60 days on skins. Just so much interest and deliciousness here. The palate is layered but powdery fresh, with the same notes as the nose and fine tannins. It stands out for its superb purity and finesse.
91+ The Wine Advocate “The expressive and floral 2016 Navaherreros Garnacha de Bernabeleva shows its true colors from minute one. It has an elegant and fresh personality, with a mixture of red fruit, lavender, wild flowers, pine trees and Mediterranean forest. It’s silky and juicy, with unnoticeable tannins. 20,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2018. This has to be the finest vintage of this wine to date.”
