Winemaker's Notes:

"A note of subtle smoky oak is present, but it is nicely blended with copious quantities of honeyed lime, lemon, and white peaches. This is a medium-bodied, unbelievably flavorful wine with far more intensity than one would expect at this price."

About Vega Sindoa:

Although the Valley of Valdizarbe has always been considered one of the best areas of production in Navarra and viticulture there is centuries-old, it almost disappeared due to the depressed prices of grapes and extreme weather conditions. This winery is one of the first to bring the vineyards back to the valley by the hands of an energetic winemaker, Concha Vecino, and an innovative vineyard manager, Jose Manuel Urricelqui.
