FINCA LA NEVERA
THE EXCELLENCE OF THE MATURANA BLANCA
Finca La Nevera is a wine with great structure and ageing potential. It doesn’t lose its primary and varietal character (essentially from Maturana blanca). Dry and long ageing in bottle, it promises exceptional results.

DESIGNATION OF ORIGIN
TYPE OF WINE
10 months in Frenk oak cask of 35 hl.
80% Maturana blanca, 20% Viura.
The Nivarius soils are formed by a superficial layer of sand with a thickness of 30-50 cm over a subsoil of fragmented limestone, 2 metres deep, that was formed in the Cretaceous period. It is a basic soil (pH>8), with an excellent structure, porosity and drainage, considered in Burgundy and other prestigious winegrowing areas as the perfect soil for the production of great wines.
Mediterranean with Atlantic influence.
Our vineyards are located at an altitude of 800 metres, north-facing, at Nalda. This situation allows to keep the natural acidity of the grapes. The result is wines with good tension, that express the terroir from which they come from and with an exceptional ageing potential.
Manual harvest in boxes of 18 kg, each variety individually. Respectful pressing at a low temperature. Fermentation in French oak casks of 35 hl with native yeast. Ageing in lees in those casks for 10 months with regular battonages. The wine stays 9 months in bottle before release.
Clean, brilliant and transparent, with a straw yellow colour with green glints. On rose it is fresh, complex and mineral, with aromas of white fruit, flowers and balsamics. On palate it is dry on entry. It is unctuous while keeping a good tension. On retronasal. Notes of balsamic, salts and chalk. It is long and well-balanced.
