(Bodegas Julián Chivite)
Chivite is one of the most iconic old bodegas in Spain, with eleven successive generations of winemaking tradition to its name. A notarial deed dated August 1647 shows that the family already possessed its own winery and vineyards at that time. Today the company has two wineries, independent of each other. One is its traditional bodega in Cientruéñigo, for the more commercial line of wines, known as Gran Feudo, and the other, in the modern Arínzano bodega, for the more exclusive wines, known as Colección 125. The Colección 125 line, introduced in 1985 to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the family winery's first export, represents the winery's high-end wines. These are wines of the terroir, of very limited production, produced from the grapes of the best vineyards.
Pale salmon hue with bright highlights.
Elegant with good complexity. Dominated by floral notes along with aromas of red and orange coloured fruits, such as peaches, combined with subtle balsamic and fresh vegetal aromas.
Delicious and fresh. Very elegant on the palate, with perfectly smooth oak. Long, lingering finish with scrubland notes.
Selectus Wines declares the Chivite Colección 125 Rosé to be the best rosé in Spain, with a totally unique, defined style without equal.
It is made from a blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha red grapes, fermented and aged on its lees in French oak for eleven months, followed by a long resting period in bottle until perfectly refined.
It is a very individual wine that stands apart. Complex and intense, with a broad array of aromas, it shows mineral notes, fennel, red fruit and candy aromas, and is full and expressive on the palate.
