Sustainably-farmed Chardonnay, night-harvested and rigorously selected. Fermented and aged for three months in a mixture of American and French oak. Bright lemon yellow with green hues. A marked and intense tropical fruit character of pineapple and banana, accompanied by citric notes of lemon and lime, finished with vanilla and recently baked bread from the oak barrels. Sweet and fresh with full mouthfeel, balanced acidity and a distinct, long finish.

Príncipe de Viana Barrel-Fermented Chardonnay (2017) - "Dried peach and green apple aromas. The palate really opens up, with plenty of stone fruit, citrus, creamy and toasty notes."

Príncipe de Viana Barrel-Fermented Chardonnay (2016) - "This Spanish Chardonnay is a light golden yellow colored. The slightly tropical nose contains some peach, lemon, banana and a hint of vanilla. It has a light to medium body and is very refreshing with zesty acidity. It f features flavors of lemon, peach, cantaloupe, light minerality and light oak. The finish is moderate in length with some citrus notes and spiciness. I would serve this with a crab cake sandwich with garlicky aioli."

Overview: 1200 acres of old vines are managed under contract throughout the region. In 2003, over one thousand additional acres of estate vineyards were established on a rolling chalky-stony plateau at the confluence of the Aragón and Ebro Rivers. Primary grape varieties, sustainably grown, are Tempranillo, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Graciano and Garnacha. Soils are mainly chalky clay and alluvial deposit, the climate an intermittent interplay of Atlantic, Mediterranean and Continental. Persistent "Cierzo" winds responsible for the adjacent Bardenas Desert Natural Park effectively minimize plant disease.

History: Bodegas Príncipe de Viana was created in 1983 as a banner project of Caja Rural de Navarra, an agricultural lending institution founded to provide financial assistance for the sustainable development of Navarra's important farming sector. Reflecting wine's nobility among agricultural products, the project takes its name from an historic Navarran title of Spanish royal succession dating to 1423.
