CHIVITE FINCA DE VILLATUERTA SELECCIÓN ESPECIAL 2010
This plump, juicy red is similar to the kind of wines you might find in Bordeaux, being Atlantic influenced yet a little further inland and warmer. Single-vineyard fruit, hand-picked, copiously drenched in oak but always exquisitely balanced. Will grace any dinner table where fine wine is required to match high-quality fare.
CHIVITE FINCA DE VILLATUERTA CHARDONNAY 2012
Partially fermented in barrel, a classically made, no expense spared, silky, textured, age worthy and simply sublime example of one of Spain’s best white wines from and international variety. Fragrant, integrated, very pure expression of Chardonnay to rival the world’s most illustrious region for the grape, and absolutely the pride of the modern Spanish trend towards excellent whites.
