Tandem Ars in Vitro Navarra Tempranillo Merlot 2017

A fresh unoaked blend of Tempranillo and Merlot that
expresses the power of the cool climate Yerri Valley with
inviting blackcurrant and red plum fruit and a hint of
spicy liquorice.


Producer Note
Tandem is the brainchild of José Maria Fraile and Alicia Eyaralar, two of the leading
lights in the Navarra winemaking scene. Committed to making the best wines in the
region with minimal intervention in the vineyards and winery, Tandem is cited by
critics as ‘cutting edge’ Navarra. The grapes are cultivated in the heart of the Yerri
Valley, which is recognised as the best area for quality wine in the region. Respect
for nature is an obsession - they follow the precepts of sustainable viticulture, while
maintaining the vineyard’s health and viability. In the winery, a minimum intervention
approach is also taken to ensure the grapes reflect their true character and terroir.
In 2019, Tandem were certified Vegan and accredited the internationally recognised
‘V label’ by the European Vegetarian Union.


Vineyard
Tandem's vineyard philosophy is based around sustainable farming and using
minimal intervention, while maintaining the vineyard’s health and viability. The
natural conditions of the valley ensure that pesticide treatments can be kept to a
minimum and take the form of sulphur and copper, avoiding products made from
synthetic chemicals. The vines are dry-farmed and undergo a green harvest, in order
to obtain lower yields and a key factor in achieving a greater concentration in the
berries. The vines are trained using the Guyot method and are grown in clay loam
soils. Harvesting is carried out at the moment of optimal ripeness and takes place
during the coolest hours of the day, so the grapes retain their freshness.


Winemaking
The grapes were cold macerated prior to fermentation. Fermentation took place in
stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of 25°C, with gentle cap immersion or
pigeage, and lasted 10 days. The wine was racked by gravity to the concrete vats
on the lower floor of the winery, where the wine went through malolactic
fermentation. Clarification occurred naturally through decantation. The wine was
aged for a minimum of 24 months in concrete vats, without spending any time in
oak. Bottling took place by gravity with minimal filtration.


Tasting Note
Cherry red in colour, this mountain wine displays a powerful expression of the terroir.
Mineral notes sit alongside intense red fruit flavours that are underpinned by hints of
violet. This is beautifully fresh, with a long and persistent finish.
