Bodegas Navajas produce this 100% Viura from vineyards around the town of Navarette in Rioja Alta. The wine undergoes fermentation in stainless steel, followed by six months in new oak. The flavours are fresh and appealing, with notes of apples and pears and a riper layer of honey and hint of spice supplied by the oak ageing. Try with mild cheeses, chicken or fish.

Buy this if...you favour delicately oaked whites.

Sublime white Rioja complete with green apple freshness.

The Producer

Bodegas Navajas is a family run winery situated in the village of Navarrete, in the heart of the Rioja region. The bodega was founded in 1918 but it wasn’t until 1983 when the Navajas family finally took complete control of the winery which has seen a dramatic improvement in quality ever since. The Bodega is run by Antonio Navajas and his wife, Rosa Maria Gandarias. Their son, Roberto, is responsible for production and quality control and their daughter, Mercedes, is in charge of exports.

The Winemaker

Son Roberto is in charge of the winemaking, with the classic ageing periods for Rioja wines. A brand new barrel ageing area installed in 2005 allows for a state-of-the-art winemaking facility combined with age-old tradition.

The Region

The Rioja region is in north eastern of Spain, located south of the Cantabrian Mountains, which help to isolate the region from the fierce winds and maritime influences. Most of Rioja’s wines are red made predominantly from the Tempranillo grape. The region has three districts: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Baja. Rioja Alta is Rioja’s fullest in terms of fruit and concentration with lovely velvety smooth tastes. Reds are made predominantly from Tempranillo and Garnacha with Graciano and Carinena playing bit parts.

Spanish Omelette

Pair this Spanish classic with vibrant, zesty whites which are lightly oaked. White Riojas are an obvious choice!

Fish Tacos

A brilliant way to jazz up any firm white fish, these quick tacos make a good lunch or sharing option - add a cool glass of crisp fruity white for good measure.

Creamy Cauliflower Cheese

Pair this rich, creamy veggie dish with fresh, unoaked red wines or crisp, fruity whites which will cut through the cheesy sauce.
