Bodegas Nekeas, Tinto Joven, 6 Bottle Case, 75cl
Equivalent Bottle Price £11.99
Winemaking in Nekeas dates back to the sixteenth century, and it was thriving till the middle of the twentieth century when industrial development around Pamplona and depressed grape prices achieved what the phylloxera blight had failed to do. Little more than the smaller, inaccessbiel plots of mostly old-vine Garnacha survived. Thankfully since the 1990s the descendants of the original grape growing families have revived old traditions on these often impossibly steep slopes at 450- 650 metres above sea level.
