Alzania’s El Retorno takes its name to bring forth the concept of ‘returning’ to using the old vineyards of the Navarra region in order to make wine, from a grape that has been their for a very long time: Garnacha. In an area that is now well known for its use of international varietals, José Manuel has recovered one particular old vineyard (and the only one left of its kind) that has olive trees and bush vines of Garnacha growing together in harmony. Alzania's El Retorno is made to showcase this incredible plot. The grapes are fermented in small wooden tanks for about 3 weeks until it is transferred to new French oak to begin malo-lactic fermentation. The wine then rests there for 8 months before it is moved to large French oak vats for a final 3 months of rest before bottling. The result is nothing short of spectacular. Gorgeously balanced between fruit, earth, wood, spice, and acidity, the aromas and the flavors are harmonious and beautifully expressive of the varietal. Fresh spring flowers, blue and red fruit character, wet rocks, and peppery spice come together for an elegant medium to full bodied red. A perfect bottle for many occasions and cuisines.
