Ars in Vitro 2014 90 points by Michael Godello Wine Align Canada

Ars in Vitro 2014 receives 90 points by Michael Godello, Wine Align Canada “Few if any tempranillo (with merlot) at this comfortable structure and price level deliver such a posit tug between traditional values and theoretical avant-garde professionalism as the Ars in Vitro or, “in vitro technique” by winemaker J.M. Fraile. Navarra is the next great endemic/old world tempranillo (and blends) frontier and Fraile’s concrete raising ushers in the purest, breathable and curative red fruit with sapid and savoury edges. […]

Ripe dark berry, vanilla and tobacco are complicated by suggestions of peppery spices and succulent herbs. Sweat and energetic in the mouth, offering juicy raspberry and cherry flavors that gain depth and tighten up slowly with aireation. Sappy, seamless and focused on a long, spice-tinged finish that features fine-grained tannins and a hint of smokiness.

Matthew Nugent Irish Sun 19/11/16 – Wines in tandem with Nature

WINE IN TANDEM WITH NATURE – Matthew Nugent, Irish Sun 19 November 2016 ‘The beautiful Yerri Valley is situated in the north of Spain’s Navarra region. It is not as well known in Ireland for wine as Rioja, which lies just to the west. But Navarra holds hidden gems – none more so than the Tandem winery. As wineries go, it is quite a young enterprise of 13 years but has stablished a reputation for wines of quality and finesse. […]

2016 harvest starts

Today October 4 our 2016 harvest has started. The ripening cycle on our grapes was even slower than usual and this is great. At our cool microclimate we always pick later than the South of our region, as much as 4 weeks, and as a result we get natural acidity on our grapes. The acidity in Tandem wines is natural, we do not correct anything. And for us it means natural freshness and elegance. We have picked today the Tempranillo […]
