Product Description
Details

This is the new vintage of Chivite Legardeta Finca Villatuerta Chardonnay, produced by Bodegas Julián Chivite.

A single varietal Chardonnay, this Spanish white wine comes from a single estate located in Tierra Estella, a subzone of the DO Navarra. The grapevines are oriented to the north, and they receive the beneficial influence of an Atlantic-Continental climate which makes possible a slow, steady ripening of the grapes.

Harvested by hand, the grapes were selected upon arriving at the cellar. Macerated for a short time and gently pressed, 20% of the wine must was then transferred into French oak barrels, and the rest into stainless steel tanks. Both were fermented and aged on lees for 5 months. Then Chivite Legardeta Finca de Villatuerta Chardonnay 2018 was blended and bottled.

A thoroughly enjoyable white wine from Navarra.

Appearance

The wine Chivite Legardeta Finca de Villatuerta Chardonnay has a bright yellow colour with some greenish tinges.

Nose

Fresh and intense, this Chardonnay from Navarra smells of tropical fruit, citrus, white flowers and fine lees. There is a dim, suggestive mineral background with a smokey note.

Palate

Savoury and fresh, this white wine aged in oak is unctuous and palate-coating. Fruit driven, with lively notes of spices, an excellent acidity and a touch of flowers. This white wine by Chivite has a long finish with a smokey aftertaste.

Our personal opinion

Elegant and substantial, Chivite Legardeta Finca de Villatuerta Chardonnay 2018 pairs excellently with fish, shrimp, rice and white meat dishes.
