Characteristics of Alma de Unx Blanco

Alma de Unx Blanco is a wine made by Bodegas San Martin in Navarra.

The winery is named after the town in which it is situated, San Martin de Unx, a small town with a great wine tradition.

Alma de Unx Blanco is a single varietal Garnacha Blanca, a not so common variety in the denomination, but very common in the San Martin de Unx.

The grapes come from a young vines planted 600 meters above sea level. In this area, there are three types of climate: Mediterranean, with mild, rainy winters and hot dry summers, Atlantic, with large temperature contrasts between winter and summer, and Pyrenean influences, with cold winters and moderate summers.

The harvest is done mechanically close to the warehouse, and manually in more remote areas. Once in the winery, the grapes are de-stemmed and squeezed before barrelling. To extract the maximum aromas of the variety, maceration takes place cold and does not exceed 12 hours. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in barrels of 300 litres from the oak forest of Navarra, at a temperature of between 18-20 ° C.

Alma de Unx Blanco is aged in the same barrels for eight months on its lees, applying batonages twice a week. This aging gives the wine a great complexity and enhances the mineral character of the terroir.

D.O. Navarra

Some wine regions have to bear the weight of their own prestige and fame, and this is certainly the case for Navarra. For many years, the white and reds produced in this region came second to the rosés produced here with the noble Grenacha variety. However, the last two decades have seen ongoing changes in the wine-making sector in Navarra, changes which have completely transformed the styles of wine produced and have been consistently worthwhile, resulting in  some of the white and red wines produced in Navarra being ranked among best rated in Spain.
