La Casa de Lúculo was created by the couple of winemakers Juan Glaría and Virginia Arranz, who joined forces with the wine group Axial Wines in 2013, to produce wines from old-vine Garnacha across the Navarra designation of origin. Installed in the old premises of the Mendigorria cooperative, La Casa de Lúculo has not only recovered but reinvented the Garnacha wine from Navarra thanks to a winemaking style that focuses on the respect for the variety way more than on creating a recognizable winemaking signature.
Said that, it’s no wonder that La Casa de Lúculo is all about Garnacha. The old cooperative winery was transformed into a winemaking temple dedicated to Garnacha variety where Garnacha is made wine with the maximum respect for the grape nature and its origin.
Bright lemon colour with green hues. Citric-driven nose with notes of white flowers. Rich palate of juicy pear flavours that lead into herbal notes and oak-characteristic flavours such as nuts and brioche. Medium bodied and well structured with high acidity and persistent finish.
• Cold decanting by gravity, during 24 hours
• Fermentation in French oak
• Wine stays in contact with its own lees, during the three-month ageing process
Serve at 8-10ºC. Thanks to its aromatic intensity, Garnacha Blanca pairs with a wide variety of foods like fish dishes, salads and rices. It goes specially well with soft creamy cheeses like Camembert and nutty cheeses such as Gruyère.
