The Chardonnay vineyards of Tierra de Castilla are growing in importance as we increase our offering of international varieties from Spain to the world. The wines from these vineyards are showing great promise for the future for this grape variety.
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 with golden reflections. Intense aromas of apple, peach, fennel and tropical fruits on the nose. A creamy softness with hints of stone fruit on the palate followed by a lovely, clean, fresh and sweet finish.
The perfect accompaniment to pasta dishes, sea food and soft cheeses.
Between 10 to 12ºC
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 16 ºC in stainless steel tanks for up to 10-12 days.The process of aging on lees continues for a short period, resulting in an elegant, fresh and fruity wine.
