Tasting Notes

“Small doors that open and small doors that close” Pequeñas Puertas – small doors – is the name of a new project resulting from the sum of VZW and Matías Michelini: their purest interpretation of historical Navarran grape varieties from unique terroirs and landscapes.

This wine is quite austere and very serious, balanced and varietal, subtle and harmonious. The palate is very solid and seamless, with very good balance and acidity and a spicy twist in the finish. It’s intense and very pure. Only 1,600 bottles were produced.

Vinification: This is a complex vintage, winter was mild but spring was very rainy and cold. Flowering and veraison were 20 days later than previous vintage, altough due to the high temperatures in September, the delay was compensated in 2 weeks. Rain was the most prominent element of the vintage after 2 years of water. deficit but there was an extra effort in the vineyard management. It the end It was a historically fresh and good vintage. Grapes are 100% Viura and come from a 35 year old vineyard from the single parcel of La Carbonela in the village of Cintruénigo. 100% oxidative spontaneous fermentation in one 500-liter barrel and 100% reductive in a 700-liter concrete egg. Aged for two years in one 500-liter barrel and one 700-liter concrete egg.
