Chivite Blanco Coleccion 125 2007
This exquisite Spanish Chardonnay is made from hand-picked grapes carefully selected from our “Las Canteras” and “El Plano” vineyards at Aberin. The privileged location of the vineyards, their age, and low yields allow this wine to show its complexity, intensity, and an aromatic profile with a range of expressions within this noble variety. The artisanal, careful winemaking creates the aromatic complement to obtain a rich and powerful whole of great finesse and harmonious and long in mouth; these virtues increase after some years maturing in the bottle. It's a perfect wine for special occasions.
Food Pairings for Chivite Blanco Coleccion 125
Fans of big, rich, barrel-fermented Chardonnays will feel right at home with this intense wine. The buttery nose reaches almost to brown butter, but different from similarly styled New World Chardonnays, and the fruits are of pear, apple, and citrus, instead of new-world fat peach and tropical notes. It creates a cleaner and more exhilarating experience: at once both fat and lean, and lengthy.
