Elegant and balanced Chardonnay from D.O. Somontano! Citric fruits and pinapple in it! Very nice!

My favorite Spanish Chardonnay - have it every time I come to Barcelona....
Lovely nose, crisp fresh, honeyed and slight buttery flavors on the palate.

As good as Chardonnay gets in Somontano (to me one of the best, if not the best, region for that in Spain). Lovely delicate white boned fruit and fine acidity

#somontano #enate #chardonnay Medium lemon color, intense primary aromas of jazmin and elderflower accompanied with aromas of ripe pineapple, ripe pear and quince. Secondary aromas of caramel, vanilla and petrol. Medium+ body, medium+ intensity flavors (less intense than in previous vintages...thank God).

Diesely nose. Apricots / nectarine at first, then nutmeg. Light and delicate. Great wine

It's almost impossible to get a better #chardonnay at a better price #qpr #enate Chardonnay was and has been ahead of its time. It hasn't been fermented in oak and yet it has a creaminess and mouthfeel that makes you think it has. If there's one downside to this wine, it's that there are times and/or places when it tastes awesome and other times when it just seems ok to me. 2015 vintage is off the hook.

La chardonnay no es mi uva favorita, sin embargo este vino me gusta. Sin tenerla parece que tiene barrica.
