White Wine Chivite Legardeta Finca de Villatuerta Chardonnay 2019
Availability: In stock
This is the new vintage of Chivite Legardeta Finca Villatuerta Chardonnay, produced by Bodegas Julián Chivite.
A 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 2019 was blended and bottled.
A thoroughly enjoyable white wine from Navarra.
The wine Chivite Legardeta Finca de Villatuerta Chardonnay has a bright yellow colour with some greenish tinges.
Fresh and intense, this Chardonnay from Navarra smells of tropical fruit, citrus, white flowers and fine lees. On the background of Finca Legardeta Chardonnay there is a dim, suggestive mineral remembrance with a smokey note.
Savoury and fresh, this white wine aged on lees is unctuous and palate-coating. Fruit driven, with lively notes of spices, an excellent acidity and a touch of flowers. This white wine of Bodegas Chivite has a long finish with a smokey aftertaste.
