Tandem Compania Vitivinicola Tandem Ars Nova

Ars Nova from Tandem has a deep ruby red colour with a violet rim. Complex and fresh on the nose, revealing ripe red and black fruit and balsamic hints. With many layers and elegance.  Bramble berry fruits, blueberries, liquorice and blackberries, scrubland, thyme and mint. Delightful, long, enveloping and extraordinary.  A fresh mountain wine with a strong expression of its terroir.

Tandem is a very exciting new project, the brainchild of Jose Maria Fraile and Alicia Eyaralar, two of the leading lights in the Navarra winemaking scene. Totally committed to making the best wines in the region, Tandem is the perfect example of New-wave Spain.  New Art in Latin, very applicable to the philosophy of this wine.  Ars Nova was a musical movement in the 14th Century which brought about the advent of volume in music.
