Esenzia Old Vine White 2021



Organically grown old vine white Grenache and Macabeo go together wonderfully for a refreshing expression of Aragon.

Taken from the Yago Aznar family vineyards in Lécera, select batches of Garnacha Blanca and Macabeo grapes are harvested during the night and cool fermented in stainless steel for 15 days, before being blended.

Pale yellow with greenish tones, there’s a summery medley of tropical fruits, citrus and white flowers on the nose. Crisp and fruity on the palate with pineapple and stone-fruit notes to the fore, a lovely roundness to the mid-palate with hints of mandarin and melon, and a clean, zippy finish.

  • Crisp, fresh, fruity

Producer: Tempore

The Yago Aznar family belong to this region of Lécera in Aragón, attuned to the extreme climate and tough landscape with a shared passion for wine-making spanning four generations of viticulturists. Today the 70 hectare estate is run by siblings Paula and Víctor Yago Aznar and their organically certified operation is predicated on the principle of 'Tempore' or time, or more precisely 'seedtime', leaving the vines to express themselves free of intervention and with the utmost respect for the land.

Here they cultivate exclusively autochthonous varieties of the region, Garnacha, Tempranillo, Macabeo and white Garnacha grapes, with 70+ year old traditional Garnacha bush vines coexisting with younger fully trellised vineyards. The entire estate is organic with a new state of the art winery built in 2002.
