Tandem Inmune Navarra Garnacha 2020

A high altitude wine displaying a powerful expression of
terroir, with intense red fruit aromas enhanced by subtle
chocolate and garrigue notes.
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.
Vintage
Winter rainfall was high, which replenished the soil water reserves ready for the growing
season. Spring was very warm, following through into a hot summer. As a result, the
vine cycle was ahead of the previous year by 10 days. Towards the end of the ripening
cycle, the weather turned cooler and was dry, creating excellent conditions for the
quality of the fruit. In 2020, the wines had less alcohol, good acidity and intense colour
concentration.
Vineyard
The grapes come from several vineyards: La Cepeta, La Losilla and El Barranco in the
D.O. Navarra region. The vineyards are situated at 800 metres above sea level and this
high elevation results in a cool microclimate, with cool summer evenings creating
excellent diurnal temperature differences. These cooler temperatures help to promote a
long, slow ripening period, which in turn produces a natural acidity in the grapes and
concentrates the flavours in the berries. The bush vines vary in age, with some vines
being over 80 years old. They are grown in calcareous, clay-loam soils.
Winemaking
The wine was made following an organic philosophy. Wild yeast fermentation took
place over 10 days at a controlled temperature of 25°C, in stainless steel vats. The cap
was gently plunged, known as pigeage, to extract the desired levels of fine tannins
and colour. No pumps were used during the vinification, instead the wine was racked
via gravity to the underground concrete vats where the wines finished fermentation
and underwent malolactic conversion. The wine was unoaked to maintain the
freshness and purity of the Garnacha fruit, spending six months in concrete lined vats,
where it underwent a natural and gentle stabilisation. Bottled by gravity with minimum
filtration.
