Availability: In stock
The most Burgundian of all Spanish Chardonnays, Chivite Colección 125 Blanco is a remarkable Spanish white wine produced in DO Navarra.
Hand-harvested, the grapes were selected twice and cold-macerated at 10ºC for 6 to 8 hours. After that, they were drawn-off and crushed with a pneumatic press.
The wine must was then fermented in French oak barrels, and then Chivite Colección 125 Blanco 2018 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.
Aerate some time before drinking.
The white wine Chivite Colección 125 Blanco is medium yellow with some golden tinges.
Complex and ever-evolving, this white wine fermented in oak has a buttery bouquet, with some smokey remembrances, notes of aromatic herbs, and tropical fruit. This Chardonnay also conveys a note of menthol, a deep mineral suggestion and hints of toasted dry fruit.
Unctuous, textured and still on the making, this wine from Bodegas Julián Chivite is superbly elegant, fresh and full of nuance. The wine nicely balances fruit and oak, with flavours of nutmeg, citrus, bone fruit, white flowers and sweet spices. Long mineral finish with a creamy note.
