By long tradition, the Navarra
wine is powerful and leaves a strong imprint on the palate.
Its wide variety of wines is due to the large extension of its
vineyards, with a total of 18,400 ha. This implies elaborations
based on different climates, from Atlantic,
Mediterranean and even continental.
The production areas of the wines are in five specific
areas: Baja Montaña, Valdizarbe, Tierra Estella, Ribera
Alta and Ribera Baja. The grape varieties are also very diverse.
Among reds, the Cabernet Sauvignon, red Garnacha
or Merlot are quite remarkable, occupying 94% of the total
production. Among whites, we must highlight the
chardonnay, white garnacha and malvasía, with 6% of the total.
A wine for every occasion
The DO Navarra gives wines of every kind, always according to the
consumer tastes. Although red wines of
Navarra are really the majority, the most renowned are the
rosé wines of
Navarra, but the region also offers white wines
and the famous sweet wines of
Navarra, with Muscat grapes.
The white wines are fresh and yellow colored, with fruity notes
in mouth. They are ideal with fish, appetizers and light entrees
like salads or pasta. The reds are characterized by their strong
color with berry flavors and vanilla notes, with
an excellent quality, very well considered in restaurants around
the world. They are recommended with pates,
cheeses, meat and poultry dishes.
Meanwhile, the rosés are those with greater leadership, at least
in Spain. They are fresh and taste of strawberries,
pomegranate... perfect with any type of rice.
The Muscat grape variety is responsible for the sweet
wines of this land. They offer an exquisite aroma and
are often consumed with cakes, cookies and sweets, and even with
goat and blue cheese.
