Despierta Chardonnay Viura 2018
Rioja look alike from Navarra - typical cedar notes, light in colour, elegant rather than weighty. Silky, smooth harmony of ripe redcurrent cassis and damson flavours.
Bodegas Cristo de la Vega is located in the heart of the D.O.P La Mancha, in the small village of Socuellamos, in the province of Ciudad Real (Castilla la Mancha, Spain). It was founded in 1955 by 25 vine growers, giving continuity to the project that they already had in common for many years. Year by year, Bodegas Cristo de la Vega became bigger and bigger, elaborating better and more sophisticated wines, as the result of the enthusiasm of the whole village.
La Mancha is the largest wine region in the world, but Bodegas Cristo de la Vega relies on extensive vineyards belonging exclusively to the members of the winery. The landscape isn’t very hilly with an altitude around 700 meters above the sea level. The vineyards enjoy a continental climate with hot summers, long and cold winters with rainfall ranging from 300 to 400 mm. These extreme conditions favour the maturation process of the varieties grown in our vineyards, some of them of almost 100 years old.
