A family winery that was founded in 1918 as Bodegas Arjona, but in 1983 the Navajas family became the sole shareholders and changed its name to Bodegas Navajas.

 

Navajas believes that the quality of the wine begins in the vineyards and for this reason they monitor and control the vineyards which belongs to their growers in the Rioja Alta and Rioja Baja.

 

The Tinto Crianza is 95% Tempranillo & 5% Mazuelo from the bodega’s vineyards in La Rioja Alta.

 

The grapes are hand picked, sorted and then fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats before the wine is aged for at least 12 months in a mixture of American and French oak barrels.

 

Bright, deep red in appearance, the nose is full of ripe, juicy fruit from the Tempranillo with hints of vanilla and smoke from the oak. Rich and rounded in the mouth with fruit and spice, the wine is well balanced with soft tannins and a long finish.
