White Wine Chivite Legardeta Finca de Villatuerta Chardonnay 2022
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 vineyard located in Tierra Estella, a subzone of DO Navarra. The vineyards 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, a portion 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. After that, Chivite Legardeta Finca de Villatuerta Chardonnay 2022 was blended and bottled.
This is a thoroughly enjoyable white wine from Navarra.
The wine Chivite Legardeta Finca de Villatuerta Chardonnay is medium straw with some greenish tinges.
Fresh and intense, this varietal Chardonnay smells of tropical fruit, citrus, white flowers and fine lees. Dim mineral remembrance with a smokey note.
Savoury and fresh, this white wine from Bodegas Julián Chivite is fruit driven and gently spicy, with an excellent acidity and a touch of flowers. More Burgundian than Californian in spirit, it has a long, citrusy finish with a smokey aftertaste.
