Description

Villa Yustina Monogram Chardonnay 2018

Villa Yustina Monogram Chardonnay has a full and voluptuous texture balanced with acidity and spicy oak notes. Intensive gold colour in the glass, from which wafts an elegant yet complex nose of butter, nuts and sweet vanilla. Pleasant freshness and remarkable balance. Flavours range from lemon citrus, quince and banana to hints of cinnamon, buttercream and caramel.

100% Chardonnay. Villa Yustina’s 42 hectare vineyards are located 4 km away from the winery, on a southern slope with an average altitude of 300 metres. The rows of vines have a northeastern exposure and grow in strongly calcareous soils.

Careful selection and hand-picking of the grapes in crates with subsequent processing at appropriate temperatures. Another round of selection on sorting tables, then the berries are separated from the stems and pressed in pneumatic press after short maceration at low temperature. Fermentation in new French oak barrels and maturation in the same barrels for 6 months, with subsequently bottle ageing for couple of months.
