As bright and refreshing as its label would imply, this is Garnacha Blanca from Navarra’s high mountain vineyards. That means poor soils, pure sunshine, clear nights and wines that sing with freshness. Lemon crisp with a lifted herbal, floral aroma.
Spain’s Navarra is full of surprises, producing styles from traditional and oaky to the most modern and fresh. Flor de San Martín is certainly in the latter camp, a brilliantly zippy fresh white made only from grapes grown in high altitude vineyards in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Little rain and these dizzy heights mean lovely intensity of crisp fruit and lifted herbal aromas – flavours that are unique to the region. This white will really get the taste buds tingling! It’s from winemaker Gonzalo Zelayeta, who works his magic at the modern San Martín de Unx winery, founded back in 1914. From hand-picked (impossible with machines) grapes and cool fermented, this is a refreshing glassful. Tops with seafood, salads and lighter dishes.
"Absolutely adore this punchy, fruity number. 5-Stars"
