Arzuaga Winery

Arzuaga Winery, a family-owned gem, is located in Valladolid, at the heart of the Ribera del Duero Designation of Origin. The winery's vineyards are found in La Planta, an estate belonging to the Arzuaga family in Quintanilla de Onésimo. This location is a haven for vine-growing, providing the perfect balance of sun and moisture that allows the grapes to ripen to perfection. Arzuaga wines are crafted based on three key premises: the soil, the climate, and the orientation of the vineyards. The soil, rich and fertile, provides a strong foundation for the vines. The climate, with its generous sun and adequate moisture, ensures the grapes mature perfectly. The orientation of the vineyards is carefully considered, maximizing the exposure to the sun and optimizing the growth of the vines. The Arzuaga family's commitment to these premises results in wines that are a true reflection of their terroir. Each bottle of Arzuaga wine brings forth the flavours and aromas unique to the Ribera del Duero region, making it a delightful experience for wine connoisseurs.

Arzuaga, Fan D.Oro, 2021

Fan D. Oro emerges as an expression of the unique craftsmanship of Bodegas Arzuaga Navarro. Defined by the diverse landscape of Ribera del Duero, this wine stands out for its ability to transcend the region's reputation for robust red wines, showcasing instead the potential of the Chardonnay grape under the expertise of the Arzuaga winemakers.

This wine is born from a select parcel of Chardonnay vines nestled within the Arzuaga estate. Every step, from harvesting to bottling, is a testament to the dedication and skill of the winemaking team.

Fermented and aged in French oak barrels, Fan D. Oro unfolds a symphony of flavors, enhancing the inherent qualities of the Chardonnay grape. This process results in a wine that melds complexity and depth, offering a multi-layered tasting experience.

A whiff of Fan D. Oro reveals a bouquet of ripe tropical fruits such as pineapple and mango, intertwined with refreshing citrus, vanilla, and toasted oak - an aromatic legacy of its time in the barrel. Upon tasting, the wine unfolds a rich, full-bodied profile, with its creamy texture perfectly balanced by vibrant acidity. Echoing the aromatic profile, the palate discovers additional mineral undertones, culminating in a finish that is both long and gratifying.

With its rich profile, Fan D. Oro offers a versatile pairing option. It complements poultry, creamy pastas, and seafood, and even holds its own against richer dishes and mature cheeses, making it a delightful addition to any meal.
