Product Description
Details

Chivite Colección 125 Reserva is an elegant varietal red wine from Navarra crafted from the best grapes coming from the "Granja de Legardeta" estate.

The Tempranillo vineyards grow under an Atlantic climate and on a terrain with a very peculiar soil composition.

2012 was a difficult, dry year. In the end, though the plants were in excellent condition at harvest time.

The grapes were meticulously harvested at dusk in order to avoid prefermentation and subsequently selected both in the vineyard and in the cellar.

After that, they were gently crushed and premacerated for 12 hours in stainless steel tanks. After the completion of alcoholic fermentation, the wine was transferred into oak barrels in order to complete malolactic fermentation.

Finally, this red wine crafted by Bodegas Julián Chivite was aged for 14 months in French oak barrels from Allier.

Chivite Colección 125 Reserva 2014 has a substantial ageing potential. Drink now to 2027.

Decant 30 minutes before drinking.

Nose

This reserve red wine by Julián Chivite smells of blackcurrants, blueberries, green bell peppers and chocolate. It also exhibits some earthy notions and aromas of cedar, tobacco and clove

Palate

Powerful and well-structured, this Tempranillo from Navarra is defined by black fruit and spices, along with touches of flowers, leather, herbs and dry earth. Clear and focused, with bold tannins, tense acidity and a long, classy finish.

Our personal opinion

The red wine Chivite Colección 125 Reserva 2014 is an excellent value from Navarra. Elegant and expressive.
