This remarkable white wine from Navarra was aged for a further months in the bottle before its commercial release.
The Spanish white wine Chivite Colección 125 Blanco has a pale lemon colour with some golden tinges.
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.
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.
