Viura & Chardonnay

Medium Dry Sparkling Wine

Origin

Viura Chardonnay sparkling wine comes from the Denominacion de Origen Protegida Valencia region. The climate in the region is strongly influenced by the warm Mediterranean weather. The vineyards in the region grow on a clayey surface and bask in hours of sunshine.

Description

We select the finest grapes of each variety. We ferment using selected
yeasts at a temperature of 16ºC to make the base wine. Later a second
fermentation takes places in pressurised stainless steel tanks using a
technique known as the short Charmant method, at a controlled temperature
of 16ºC until the pressure reaches a maximum of 4-5 bars. The wine is
filtered under pressure using Tangential flow filtration and bottled including
the remaining natural residual sugar.

Tasting notes

Colour: Bright yellow with green tinges.
Aroma: Very fruity with white fruit character, such as pear and apple together with stoned fruit such as peach.
Taste: Deliciously fresh and crisp. On the palate the gas feels creamy; the combined fruit aromas have a slightly sweet taste but fresh
