Tempranillo, this time from Navarra and as always, it delivers
Spain, Navarra, Sabina, Tempranillo, DO, 2013

Produced by Bodegas Príncipe de Viana, based in Murchante, started in 1983 and has become since a major producer in the area. Navarra, with Rioja as its southern neighbour, produces predominantly red wines, with the number of whites slowly increasing.

The Bodegas grows a variety of grapes and with its vast vineyards it is able to control the production fully, right up to the bottling. The name Sabina stands for the indigenous Spanish juniper tree grown locally in Navarra and a drawing of the windswept tree is on the label (in it’s typical shape). The modern winery has an impressive barrel room, with more than 15000 oak barrels.
