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 two varieties were vinified separately. Fermentation took place at controlled
temperatures of between 30 to 31°C, lasting 30 days. The cap was plunged but no
pumps were used during the process. The wine was racked by gravity to
underground concrete vats where it underwent malolactic fermentation and was
naturally fined through settling. The wine was matured for 18 months in French 300
litre oak casks.


Tasting Note
A very complex nose with delicate aromas of cloves, black pepper and pipe
tobacco mingling with mountain minerality, scrubland, balsamic notes and rich,
dark chocolate. A powerful yet elegant wine, this really showcases its terroir with a
long, fresh and concentrated finish.
