Tasting notes - Inmacùla in Latin means without blemish and this is a lovely clean, bight wine with fine aromas of apricot, pear, floral notes and an elegant mineral touch. It is expressive, long and has a subtle minerality on the finish.
A full bodied style of Viognier with creamy notes of spicy
dried pineapple and pepper, packed with flavour.
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.
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.
The grapes were harvested at night to retain freshness. After several hours of prefermentation
maceration at 10°C, the must was racked. 100% of the Viognier was
fermented in 300 litre French oak barrels while the Viura was fermented in stainless
steel. Daily bâttonage took place in the barrels adding texture and complexity.
Tandem's winery is built partially underground to create a gravity fed winery with
minimal stress for the wines.
