YX Castilla Chardonnay/Sauv Blanc – 750ml
Looking for something a bit different? The YX Castilla is considered a non-traditional blend. The wine encompasses two of the most wonderful, but diverse white grapes; Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Our wine artist, Daniel Barrio, crafted a wine that has a rush of crisp, zesty fruit flavor on the front end with a smooth, buttery, oaky finish.

Stories behind the wine
An interesting blend choice of two grape varieties that are traditionally found as single varietal wines. They often are not blended, even though they originate from the same region of France, due to the fact they both produce very different styles of wine – Chardonnay is rich, round and buttery, while Sauvignon Blanc is more fresh, aromatic and zingy. The secret to making this the perfect blend is in the maceration and oak barrel aging. Maceration is when the winemaker lets the skins of the grape come in contact with the juice. This particular white wine saw four months of oak aging.
