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.
2017 was a very challenging year, which was characterised by drought conditions. No rain fell after June, which resulted in lower yields. The Garnacha plots however coped very well with the lack of precipitation and the fruit produced was beautiful. The wine has a beautiful, deep colour and great concentration.
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.
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 fermentation. 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.
