Castillo de Monjardin El Cerezo Unoaked Chardonnay 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Fresh and polleny on the nose with a hint of jellied orange candy laid under the zesty ginseng edged apple and nectarine fruit here. Bright, fresh and sapid in the mouth with early flavors of lime and lemon frenching the palate before they gain apricot and green apple nuance on the backend. there’s a hint of spice here, something slightly bitter and the candied note from the nose returns on the palate but there’s so much acidity and freshness here that it adds welcome nuance. The finish is a bit on the short and simple side, with that slightly bitter apple seed nuance emerging to add a refreshing finale. Delicious. 87pts

1986 marked the commencement of the work to re-structure the family vineyard at Villamayor de Monjardín, directed at modernising the wine-making process in Navarre. At the same time they extended and upgraded the buildings on the land in order to construct their winery, which was inaugurated in 1994.. Right from the outset, the winery has boasted a visitors' reception area, as they are unable to conceive their work without the involvement of their customers and friends. Bodegas Castillo de Monjardín was developed by Sonia Olano and Víctor del Villar, with the idea of being unique, in the wine-making and wine-ageing processes. Their wines are produced in buildings occupying an area of 4,000 m2 , with a separate building for each wine-making process, and a twelve meter difference in level between each one. In this way, the northern face of each building is below the grade line, thereby providing the ideal temperature and humidity for our wines, as well as favoring transfers. They are always open to innovative wine-making techniques, given the fact that the winery gives the wine its character, and innovation and technology are two tools which need to be used. They are not a winery that just sits back and continues to produce the same wine, year in year out. Their interest in innovative wine-making processes has led them to produce different wines, wines that stand out from the crowd, with an exceedingly high standard of quality. Read less
