Details

The wine Chivite Colección 125 Blanco is a remarkable Spanish white wine produced in the DO Navarra.

A single varietal Chardonnay produced by Julián Chivite, it is made from a careful selection of the very best vines from Finca Lagardeta.

After a meticulous harvest, the grapes were cold-macerated for 6 to 8 hours, and subsequently crushed with a pneumatic press.

Then the wine must was fermented in French oak barrels. After that, Chivite Colección 125 Blanco 2016 was aged for 11 months on its lees with periodic stirrings.

This remarkable white wine from Navarra was aged for a further months in the bottle before its commercial release.

Additional Information

Appearance

The Spanish white wine Chivite Colección 125 Blanco has a pale lemon colour with some golden tinges.

Nose

Complex and intense, this white wine fermented in oak has a buttery bouquet, with some smokey remembrances, notes of aromatic herbs, and tropical fruit. This Chardonnay also carries a note of menthol and toasted dry fruit.

Palate

Unctuous and rich, this wine from Chivite has a dry character and a very good acidity. This Chardonnay from Navarra nicely balances fruit and oak, with flavours of nutmeg, citrus, bone fruit, white flowers and sweet spices. Long finish.

Our personal opinion

The age-worthy Spanish white wine Chivite Colección 125 Blanco 2016 will please the most demanding aficionados. Perfect with white meats, oily fishes and soft cheeses.
