Wine Description

Otazu Chardonnay 2021 (D.O. Navarra) is a 100% Chardonnay wine. The grapes were harvested in the Chardonnay blocks of the estate’s vineyard in September 2021. The must underwent a static clarification and then fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to maintain its personality and varietal characteristics. This wine was aged on its lees for three months in stainless steel tanks in order to maintain its personality and varietal characteristics.

Tasting Notes

Otazu Chardonnay 2021 exhibits a lemon yellow color, very clean and bright. It expresses an intense nose revealing outstanding floral and white fruit notes such as pear. Good volume and fleshy on the palate, with a fresh and fruity finish. This wine pairs very well with shellfish, grilled and cooked fish, poultry, pasta, salads, rice meals, foie gras and soft sheep cheeses.
