Legardeta Finca de Villatuerta Chardonnay is a white wine from the D.O. Navarra made by Chivite, one of the wineries with the most history in the region.
It is a single varietal of the Chardonnay grape. The grains used by Legardeta Finca de Villatuerta Chardonnay come from the vineyards owned by the winery located in the town of Villatuerta.
The yield per hectare is low, a fact that allows a not very abundant but high quality harvest. After the corresponding cultivation and harvesting processes, the bunches are treated in the winery. The process of making the Legardeta Finca de Villatuerta Chardonnay grapes follows the traditional methodology, implemented for centuries in Chivite.
Legardeta Finca de Villatuerta Chardonnay, before being marketed, ages for six months in French oak barrels on its lees. The aging of white wines -as in this case- and rosés are one of the main characteristics of the renowned Chivite winery.
