            [Notes4] => 70% Verdejo and 30% Viura. 40% barrel fermented in mix of American and French oak. The tropical fruit character of the Verdejo is complemented by the lemony zing of the Viura, all wrapped up in creaminess from partial barrel fermentation.
            [MediaNotes] => 
            [ServingSuggestion] => A great wine to drink with classic game  dishes such as venison, wild boar, roast suckling pig. It will also pair well with punchy dishes such as ragout and spicy tomato based recipes.			
			

            [WineMakingNotes] => Calatayud offers one of the most singular areas in Spain for Old Vine Garnacha-based wines due to its unique continental climate and
ancient vines which produce wines of great intensity. The Garnacha and other varieties are carefully sourced from the highest altitude vineyards on the slopes of Monte Armantes and Sierra de la Virgen in the heart of the Iberian System. This is the birthplace of Garnacha. 2020 was a precocious vintage and the wines are characterised by great energy and are extremely fruit forward.
Papa Luna was our first release from Calatayud in 2004. Since then, Norrel has become widely known for his intense and complex Garnacha-based wines which have picked up awards across the world.
Pedro Martinez de Luna, or Papa Luna, was the last Pope to reign in Avignon during the dual Papacy in the 14th and early 15th century. Luna was born in the Calatayud region and this wine is made in homage to this great local historical character and icon. Norrel has spent the last 20 years searching out and saving old vineyards to make this very individual wine.

Yield for the Garnacha did not exceed 20hl per hectare.

Sharon and Norrel continue to build their family business for the future.

Winemaking >

Calatayud offers one of the most singular areas in Spain for Old Vine Garnacha-based wines due to its unique continental climate and ancient vines which produce wines of great intensity. The Garnacha and other varieties are carefully sourced from the highest altitude vineyards on the slopes of Monte Armantes and Sierra de la Virgen in the heart of the Iberian System. This is the birthplace of Garnacha. 2020 was a precocious vintage and the wines are characterised by great energy and are extremely fruit forward. Papa Luna was our first release from Calatayud in 2004. Since then, Norrel has become widely known for his intense and complex Garnacha-based wines which have picked up awards across the world. Pedro Martinez de Luna, or Papa Luna, was the last Pope to reign in Avignon during the dual Papacy in the 14th and early 15th century. Luna was born in the Calatayud region and this wine is made in homage to this great local historical character and icon. Norrel has spent the last 20 years searching out and saving old vineyards to make this very individual wine. Yield for the Garnacha did not exceed 20hl per hectare.
