Made from Moscatel de Grano Menudo ("Muscat Blanc à petits grains"), Chivite Colección 125 Vendimia Tardía is a single estate Sweet white wine coming from vines planted in 1969 at "El Candelero", a plot composed of limestone soils and located at an altitude of 400 metres above sea level.
Harvested by hand from October to December, when the grapes had reached the "noble rot" state, this Spanish white wine from the DO Navarra was meticulously vinified. After that, Chivite Vendimia Tardía 2017 was fermented and aged in new French oak barrels for over a period of 5 months.
This exquisite sweet wine from Navarra has a production around 12,000 bottles.
The Spanish sweet white wine Chivite Vendimia Tardía has a golden colour with some coppery and amber nuances.
Complex and rich, this sweet white wine conveys all the character of the Moscatel de Grano Menudo variety. Ripe white grapes, white flowers, honey, quince jelly, dried figs and citrus rind.
Savoury and sensuous, this wine from Bodegas Julián Chivite has a distinctive freshness which compensates its delightfully decadent character. Flavours of honey, citrus, toast, dry fruit, spices and aromatic herbs. Extremely long finish.
