Winemaker's Notes

The creamy texture of this smoky white is enlivened by a vein of integrated acidity. Stone and vanilla notes underscore pear, dried apple and lanolin flavors and lead to a lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The only white from Bodegas Nekeas to see some wood is the 2011 Chardonnay, which is barrel-fermented in new French Allier oak barrels, given weekly batonnage, and aged for four months on its lees prior to bottling. When first produced by Bodegas Nekeas, this wine seemed to have just a trifle too much oak, but now the wood component has been pushed to the background in favor of exotic orange marmalade, honeysuckle and caramelized citrus notes along with some subtle wood spice. This is an opulent, medium-bodied Chardonnay."

Style: Fruity & Smooth
Fruity, crisp, and slightly sweet great after dinner wine. Not too dry, for those palettes that prefer a more casual wine.

Although the Valley of Valdizarbe has always been considered one of the best areas of production in Navarra and viticulture there is centuries-old, it almost disappeared due to the depressed prices of grapes and extreme weather conditions. This winery is one of the first to bring the vineyards back to the valley by the hands of an energetic winemaker, Concha Vecino, and an innovative vineyard manager, Jose Manuel Urricelqui.
