Details

A dry Spanish white wine crafted by Bodegas Calvente, Calvente Guindalera is one of the few Spanish wines listed in the prestigious Neil Beckett's guide "1001 Wines You Must Try Before You Die".

This remarkable high-altitude wine is made from Moscatel de Alejandría in la Sierra del Chaparral, Granada, a place between Sierra Nevada and the Mediterranean coast. The 50 to 120-year old vines are grown on steep slopes and scattered over several estates, totalizing 14.5 hectares.

Located at altitudes between 750 and 1025 metres above sea level, the region has a continental microclimate with Mediterranean influences that allow for a slow, steady ripening of the grapes and yields exceptional results. 

Harvested at dawn a little earlier than usual, the handpicked grapes were brought to the cellar in small, 15 kg. boxes. Fermented in stainless steel tanks under strict temperature control, Calvente Guindalera 2017 was then aged on its lees for a minimum of 9 months. Finally, it was mechanically filtered and bottled.

You can enjoy this dry white wine from Granada over the next 3 years.

Additional Information

Appearance

The white wine Calvente has a yellow wax colour with a greenish hue at the rim.

Nose

At first, this Moscatel de Alejandría from Granada suggests dim aromas of yellow and tropical fruit, nuanced by hints of jasmine and orange blossom over a background of mineral and citrus.

Palate

This dry white wine by Bodegas Calvente has an excellent balance, with grip and focus. Lemon, pomelo and tangerine over a dry, mineral background. Fresh and persistent, the wine has an uplifting acidity and a long mineral aftertaste.

Our personal opinion

The unconventional, exquisite Calvente 2017 shows a different side of the well-known Muscat grape.
