We seem to associate Spain with their native grape varieties but they also make beautiful wines from some of the more famous international grape varieties too and this is a beautiful example of an unoaked Chardonnay which we could not believe comes in just under the £10 price point.
With vineyards on the border between Rioja and Navarra, Victor Manzanos carries on the work of the four generations before him yet championing a modern interpretation of international varieties through his wines. With meticulous attention to detail in the vineyards, coupled with the extreme climate this gives the perfect conditions for the production of great wines. Grapes are all hand-picked with fermentation taking place in stainless steel with wine being matured on the lees to give added texture and body.
Bright lemon in colour with intense tropical and stone fruits aromas. Fresh, with a typical silky touch on the mouth.
We shouldn’t say it (as we always tell you not to buy with your eyes) but the bottle is beautiful too. A perfect gift for any Chardonnay lover.
