Winemaker's Notes:

The creamy texture of this smoky white is enlivened by a vein of integrated acidity. Stone and vanilla notes underscore pear, dried apple and lanolin flavors and lead to a lingering finish.

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.
