Nodus
Chardonnay

 

D. O. Utiel-Requena

An Unrivalled Wine

This incomparable, wonderful wine is obtained with magnificent musts produced from the Chardonnay grape grown on the estate. Only the highest quality must undergo a cold maceration to extract its full potential, which is then fermented in new oak barrels. Fermentation of the Nodus Chardonnay in new oak barrels gives it a nuance as distinct as it is decisive. Categorised as an organic wine since the 2018 vintage.

Tasting Notes

Colour:

An open coloured wine that has a clean and bright surface, a straw yellow colour with flashes of gold.

Nose:

Its comprehensive aromas, from the grape variety and new wood, are elegant and complex, evoking notes of tropical fruit and vanilla.

Taste:

On the palate it is harmonious and well-structured, and light, due to its acidity. Its aftertaste is reminiscent of fruit and wood.

Pairing:

The intensity of its flavours makes it an ideal companion to stews, fish and seafood dishes with an intense flavour. It is ideal with smoked fish.

Serving Temperature:

Serve cold, but not too cold, at approximately 10-12ºC.
