A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Tempranillo, the Bodegas Nekeas Izar Navarra Reserva is an expertly blended wine with a touch of rich Spanish tradition. This wine is balanced, complex, structured, velvety and round. It is a Spanish red wine that is lighter than its counterparts.
Named after the Navarra-Basque word for Star, Izar has been dubbed as the “star” of the Nekeas winery. Only made and released to market in certain conditions, the people behind this winery are truly committed to creating quality products, like wine and oils, that showcase the beauty of the Nekeas Valley.
Because of its rich complexity, the Bodegas Nekeas Izar Navarra Reserva goes perfectly well with a number of dishes and European or Mediterranean recipes. This wine pairs well with heartier and heavier dishes like beef, pasta, veal and poultry. You may try this with a Spanish-style Chorizo and Beef Pasta or a Spanish Style Veal Stew.
Store your unopened bottle in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 7 to 15°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
