A white grape variety with enormous potential for the production of fine wines. It is generally drunk during its first few years of life in order to fully appreciate the splendour of the grape. It produces wine that is highly perfumed and fruity, with a fragrant touch of mango, apple, peach, apricot and vanilla. There are also floral notes such as magnolia and honeysuckle.
This is one of Spain's best white grape varieties. The vine grows horizontally and has a vigorous trunk, while bunches are small to medium-size with a very short stalk. It is usually used alone, in single varietal wines. It produces glyceric, smooth and highly aromatic wines with plenty of body. Good acidity and a characteristic bitter touch.
Also known as 'Viura', it is an intensely aromatic variety which has a structured palate with light astringent notes. Depending on the area, the bouquet can vary from fruit (citrus) to minerals, to undergrowth... In Murcia it is the principal white variety used for aromatic young wines.
In the past, this variety was considered to be a neutral grape, without a marked aroma or flavour. Today, thanks to the use of moderated fermentation techniques, greater benefit has been made of the variety, giving rise to frank, fresh and easy-to-drink wines with a fruity aroma, although slightly lacking in acidity.
This is the most popular and widespread white grape variety in the world. Subtle, with a fruity bouquet (apple, melon, guava), Chardonnay wines can be extremely complex, expressing the character of the particular terroir from which they come.
SMALL GRAIN MUSCAT
A white variety with an intense muscatel bouquet, which is the preferred choice for making natural sweet and fortified wines. The bunches are medium-sized with small grapes, which should be picked when they are on the verge of over-ripening, thus allowing the grape to express its full potential.
