The Chardonnay variety loves the gastronomy and Mediterranean breeze of Alicante. This refreshing grape adores the sunshine of our region, and its hints of tropical fruit make it the ideal partner for our fish and rice dishes.
The grapes are harvested before sunrise during the third week of August. Dry ice is used to cool the grapes during transportation to the winery to maintain the subtle aromas in these grapes. A long and cool fermentation is carried out at a temperature of 15°C, allowing for greatest varietal expression.
Recommended with seafood, salads, and all kind of white meat.
This brilliant Chardonnay has an outstanding pale yellow colour. On the nose its intense aromas comprises of a mixture between tropical fruit and ripe apple. In the mouth it is very fresh with a good balance between acidity and fruit. The lengthy mouth-watering finish is marked by crisp green apple aromas.
