The Chardonnay vineyards of Tierra de Castilla are growing in importance as we increase our offering of international grape varietals from Spain to the world. The wines from these vineyards are already showing great promise!
Like France’s Vins de Pays, Vino de la Tierra de Castilla is a Spanish geographic indicator for wines from the autonomous region of Castilla-La Mancha. This is a region at an altitude of 700m covered with limestone and argillaceous soils that endure scarce rain falls.
Pale yellow in colour with golden hues. The nose has intense aromas of apple, peach, fennel and tropical fruits. The palate has a creamy softness with hints of stone fruit. A lovely, clean, fresh and sweet finish.
The perfect accompaniment to pasta dishes, seafood and soft cheeses.
Grapes are picked at their optimum ripeness to obtain a well-balanced wine with just the right levels of sweetness and acidity. The wine undergoes a short period of cold maceration that lasts for around 6 hours. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 14-16ºC in stainless steel tanks for up to 12-15 days. It is followed by a short period of maturation, resulting in an elegant, fresh and fruity wine.
