Principe de Viana Chardonnay

Principe de Viana, a distinguished winery rooted in the heart of the Navarra region in Spain, has gained recognition for producing exceptional wines that showcase the unique terroir of the area.  Among their notable offerings is the Principe de Viana Chardonnay, a white wine that exemplifies the winery’s commitment to quality and craftsmanship.

The vineyards benefit from a continental climate with a Mediterranean influence, creating an ideal environment for cultivating Chardonnay grapes. The combination of warm days and cool nights allows the grapes to ripen slowly, developing a balance of acidity and sugar, contributing to the wine’s elegance and complexity.

The grapes are hand-harvested to guarantee that only the finest clusters are selected. Once in the winery, the grapes undergo gentle pressing to extract the juice, which is then fermented in stainless steel tanks. This fermentation process preserves the delicate aromas and flavours.

The use of oak barrels is a distinctive feature in the winemaking process.  A portion of the wine is aged in French oak barrels, imparting subtle notes of vanilla and spice while enhancing the overall structure and complexity.

On the nose, reveals a bouquet of tropical fruits, including pineapple and mango, complemented by citrus notes of lemon and grapefruit. The judicious use of oak adds layers of complexity with hints of vanilla and a touch of toasted almond.

The palate is equally captivating, offering a harmonious balance between the crisp acidity and the full-bodied texture. Flavors of ripe pear, apple, and a subtle minerality contribute to the wine’s depth, leading to a lingering and satisfying finish.

The wines bright acidity makes it a refreshing choice to pair with seafood, particularly grilled shrimp, or lobster. The wine’s fuller body also complements creamy pasta dishes, roasted chicken, and mild cheeses.
