Being the main producers of the native Moristel and Parraleta grape varieties, Bodega Pirineos also offers a successful balance with foreign grape varieties thanks to its high technical capacity. This allows them to produce a wide portfolio of top quality wines. All with strong roots and social support thanks to the participation of more than 200 wine growers from the Comarcal Comarcal de Somontano that are distributed throughout 22 towns in Somontano. The authenticity of the crops and the privileged microclimate of Somontano are, among others, the main secrets for producing “technically perfect” wines that have satisfied millions of consumers for more than 50 years.

Winemaking

The most refreshing sparkling white combines the white Gewürztraminer grape to offer us an ideal wine for the youngest palates. Alquézar takes its name from a beautiful medieval village in the Sierra de Guara, in the heart of Somontano. From there start the most spectacular mountain activities that can be done in the area.

After a cold maceration of the must with the skins for 2 hours at a temperature of 10ºC, it ferments, once clean, at temperatures of 17ºC for approximately 1 day to develop and preserve the maximum aromas. Fermentation is stopped by cold and filtration so that a few grams of unfermented sugars remain.

Tasting notes

Pale yellow color with gold tones, very clean. Aromas of roses, flowers, citrus and ginger. In the mouth, it is soft, fruity, of great finesse, with sweetness balanced by its carbon content.

Recommended serving temperature: 8°C.

Pairing recommendation

It pairs perfectly with shellfish, barnacles, Parmesan cheese, pasta and pizzas.
