Chardonnay

Luigi Bosca Finca Los Nobles • Chardonnay 2017 is a unique bright yellowish white wine with greenish reflections. It has intense and balanced aromas, with white fruit, dried fruit and smooth smoked notes from its ageing in French oak. It is sharp, refreshing, vigorous and fat in the mouth, with a clear fruity and rather floral character. Clean and deep in the palate, long and mineral in the mouth, with subtle toast aromas. It is a white of great storage capacity that reflects the spirit of the vineyard and the Arizu family.

Climate

Continental climate, with a wide range of temperature between day and night, and well-defined seasons which contribute to a good growth of the vines.

Soil and vine

Finca Los Nobles has a sandy loam soil, with stones of varying size at a half depth and excellent water drainage. High density planting of 6,600 plants per hectare. No chemical herbicides are used at the vineyard, and organic practices are implemented for its care and treatment.

Winemaking

The grapes are hand-picked in boxes from 18 to 20 kilograms. After the selection of clusters, they are destemmed for further grain selection. Soft pressing, cold enzymatic stripping for 36 hours. 50% of the wine ferments with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature from 14°C to 16°C and the remaining 50% is aged in new French oak barrels for 12 months. Once the oak ageing is finished and the final blend is done, the wine is stabilized, filtered and bottled. Finally, it is stored in a refrigerating chamber at 7°C before market release.

Ageing in barrels

Comments by the winemaker

The 2017 harvest showed naturally low yields caused by the really cold spring that took place in 2016. This led to the grapes’ excellent natural concentration which, in addition to the cold weather during the ripe period, resulted in elegant white wines with great aromatic expression, body and acidity, as Finca Los Nobles • Chardonnay.
