Vinos de Parcela are wines made from grapes from specific estates, generally small in size, selected for their characterful soils and particular climate. In these estates, the natural environment and the vineyards are intertwined to produce authentic oenological jewels.
At Murviedro, they have carefully chosen plots located on hilltops and surrounded by forests, with the aim of creating wines with their own identity, exclusive and limited production. These plots represent special places where the combination of soil, climate and natural environment come together to give rise to unique and distinctive wines.
Bodegas Murviedro recently presented its most exclusive white wine: Vallejo Avenas Chardonnay, whose grapes come from a single plot that the winery owns in Venta del Moro, with PDO Utiel Requena. This is a single plot wine aged in oak barrels.
The vineyard sits on a limestone plateau, a poor soil with great viticultural potential, whose peculiarity is the superposition of horizons of limestone and red clayey marl and fine sandstone formed in the tertiary era. The continental climate, softened by the influences of the Mediterranean Sea, and the sustainable viticulture practices with which the vines are pampered end up shaping the elegant personality of this select aged white wine.
Vallejo Avenas Chardonnay 2018 is also carefully crafted. The grapes are gently pressed, the must ferments slowly in barrels at a low temperature and then the wine is aged for 6 months in 500-litre French oak barrels with its fine lees. As a white wine for ageing, its rest in the bottle refines the wine to be enjoyed over the next few years thanks to its low pH and excellent natural acidity.
