From Basque mythology, Ahari was an elf in the shape of a ram who went out at night to scare people for fun. In this case, Oxer wanted to show in the elf a small nod to the painting ‘Guernica’ by Pablo Picasso.

Black and red fruit, floral notes, sweet spices together with well-integrated wood give it complexity, together with a pleasantly fresh acidity and fine-grained tannin structure. On the palate black fruit, sweet spices, violets and a touch of leather. An intense and lively wine.
