AWARDS & ACCOLADES
The 2016 Navaherreros Blanco de Bernabeleva is a blend of 60% Albillo Real and 40% Macabeo/Viura, mixing varieties and vineyards. It keeps the poise and freshness, is nicely textured and has moderate alcohol (12.5%). It has a clean palate with focused flavors and a pleasant bitter touch in the finish, perhaps from the work with the skins. This is very obviously young, but it’s already drinkable. 17,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in October 2017.
Limpid straw-yellow. Ripe orchard and citrus fruits on the nose, where a minerally nuance builds slowly and adds zesty lift. Silky and broad on the palate, showing very good clarity to the pear nectar, tangerine and honeysuckle flavors. A jolt of gingery spiciness adds final spicy cut to a long, well-delineated finish.
