Product Description
Details

Produced by the exemplary L'Olivera Cooperativa, Eixaders is a single varietal Chardonnay from the DO Costers del Segre.

This single varietal Chardonnay is made from vines located in the town of Vallbona de les Monges.

Harvested by hand and gently crushed, the grapes were fermented in 25% French and 75% American oak barrels, 25% new ones. After that, this Spanish white wine also underwent malolactic fermentation.

Then this white wine from Costers del Segre was aged for 3 to 4 months on its lees with frequent stirrings.

Drink Eixaders 2018 until 2024.

Our qualifying the coop as "exemplary" was not, incidentally, mere sales rethoric. On the contrary, it is worth noting that, for more than two decades, L'Olivera Cooperativa has been working within its community in favour of the economic and social integration of the intellectually disabled.

Appearance

The white wine Eixaders has a bright, clean golden colour with some greenish tinges.

Nose

This organic Chardonnay from Costers del Segre is well-balanced and complex. Ripe pineapples, almonds, green apples, remembrances of white flowers, some lactic touches and notions of pastry, smoke and mineral.

Palate

This original white wine from L'Olivera Cooperativa is unctuous, smooth and palate-coating, but still fresh. Remembrances of flowers, smoke, English custard, French patisserie, citrus and laurel. Excellent acidity and a long, silky finish.

Our personal opinion

The succulent Eixaders 2018 makes a great pairing with rice and fish recipes.

Nice organic Chard. The tropical and oaky notes are present, but this wine also has freshness, a note of aromatic herbs and a good acidity.
