Decanter UK – Elected for two consecutive years as one of the Top 100 Wineries in the World !!
Iñaki Núñez is one of Spain's most famous moviemakers (he produced Basic Instinct in Hollywood). But Spain, and especially historic Navarra, was always his real home. So he came back, bought a vineyard, built a castle and set out to make the best red wine he could. Fortunately, he recruited Jean-Marc Sauboua who trained atChâteau Haut-Brion, as advisor. The aim of Bodegas Inaki Nunez is to make 100% single estate wines of the very highest quality. The estate, located just outside the village of Ablitas in Navarra, runs along a canal at an altitude of 220 m and enjoys a continental climate with high summer temperatures reaching between 30-40 C The aim of the bodega is to make a 100% single-estate wine of the very highest quality; this can only be achieved using grapes from bodega's own estate. With an average yield of around 4.000-4.500 kg per hectare, production from 135 hectares can reach around 607,500 kilos of excellent quality grapes for making Reserva and Gran Reserva wines. The grapes are picked manually and grape selection is a meticulous process, starting at the vineyard where the wines are green pruned and later at the selection table, where only the very best grapes are chosen for fermentation in the wooden vats. Critic Robert Parker notes: `the wines of Rioja have taken a back-seat to the gorgeously ripe inexpensive fruit-driven reds of once-overlooked Navarra.` Here`s proof that Navarra competes on value and quality - a fruity barrel-aged mellow red with echoes of good Rioja. Pagos de Cirsus is leading the way. Owned by film producer Inaki Nunez and with dynamic winemaker Maitena Barrero in charge the estate has already earned an impressive haul of rave reviews and top awards. This is made from hand-picked Tempranillo, Merlot and Cabernet sauvignon
