Characteristics of Castillo de Monjardín Chardonnay Barrica Selección
Castillo de Monjardín Chardonnay Barrica Selección is a white wine produced by BodegasCastillo de Monjardín in Villamayor de Monjardín, D.O. Navarra.
BodegasCastillo de Monjardín is a winery located in the centre of Navarre, at the foot of the Pyrenees, a privileged area for the cultivation of vines. This area is highly influenced by the French history and culture, which give it the tradition when it comes to producing their wines with varieties like Chardonnay, Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon.
BodegasCastillo de Monjardín has 220 hectares of vineyards located at around 700 metres of altitude, on sunny hillsides refreshed by the "Cierzo", strong cold wind characteristic of this area. These vines are between 15 and 70 years old.
All their wines are made with grapes from their own farms, with controlled fermentations, and ageing in French and American oak barrels. They combine the best traditional methods with innovation, using state-of-the-art winemaking techniques. Their aim is to produce top quality wines that represent the land where they are born.
Castillo de Monjardín Chardonnay Barrica Selección is a wine made from 100% Chardonnay, from Azqueta, a 25-year-old farm located at 650 metres of altitude. After the harvest, fermentation takes place in new French oak barrels where the grapes remain for 6 months. Before it is launched on the market, it is left to stand in the bottle for a minimum of 12 months.
Castillo de Monjardín Chardonnay Barrica Selección is a mature, silky and balanced wine. It stands out for its balance between structure and freshness.

Some wine regions have to bear the weight of their own prestige and fame, and this is certainly the case for Navarra. For many years, the white and reds produced in this region came second to the rosés produced here with the noble Grenacha variety. However, the last two decades have seen ongoing changes in the wine-making sector in Navarra, changes which have completely transformed the styles of wine produced and have been consistently worthwhile, resulting in some of the white and red wines produced in Navarra being ranked among best rated in Spain.
