Spanish Chardonnay may not be as well-known as its counterparts from France or California, but it’s certainly a wine worth trying. It’s grown in various regions across Spain, including Catalonia, where it contributes to some Cava blends, and Navarra, known for its innovative approaches to winemaking. Spanish Chardonnay is usually marked by a balance between ripe fruit flavours – think apple, pear, and tropical fruits – and fresh acidity. Depending on the vinification method, it might also showcase buttery, toasty, or vanilla notes from oak ageing. For those interested in Chardonnay with a unique spin, Spanish Chardonnay offers an intriguing take on this globally loved variety.
