La Doncella Chardonnay 2020
A beautifully crisp and clean Chardonnay from a region not normally known for the grape.
Grape: 100% Chardonnay
Region: La Mancha, Spain
Chardonnay is seldom planted in Spain so we were thrilled to find this compelling, unoaked bottle from La Mancha. Light in body, dry on the palate with a vibrant fruitiness.
The name “Doncella”, which means “Maiden”, has its origin in an ancient story about the Pago Guijoso vineyard. It is said that when the vines were young, a young maiden used to take a walk through them every afternoon to watch the sun setting on the vines. Nobody perhaps saw her up close, but everybody said that this young maiden, who wore garlands of flowers, would sing songs of love in the vineyard. The vines today hold the secrets of those love songs of legend, which live on today in each bottle of “La Doncella”.
