This has a pretty nose of baked pears, custard, pie crust, macadamia nut and apricots. Bright on the palate, with lemons, crushed stones and fine lees. Medium- to full-bodied yet vibrant and fresh, showing some complexity already, with a salty undertone in the long finish. The first Milmanda that does not have malolactic fermentation. Chardonnay. Drink or hold.
Milmanda Vineyard
Planted exclusively with Chardonnay more than 40 years ago, this 15-hectare, well-established vineyard lies at the foot of the Milmanda castle. The lime-rich calcareous clay soils have moderate drainage and high water-holding capacity. The vineyard is protected by the Sierra de Prades and the Mediterranean climate is tempered by the continental landmass. The climatic and geological conditions enable the variety to develop to its full potential, the unmistakable mark of this thousand-year-old landscape.

DO Conca de Barberà
Conca de Barberà is located in the north of the province of Tarragona. It extends over a plain flanked by the rivers Francolí and Anguera and protected from the influence of the Mediterranean Sea by the mountains that surround it, especially the Sierra de Prades. Its natural resources, together with its history and traditions, make it a privileged area for winegrowing.

Vintage comments:
The harvest in Conca de Barberà came early due to the weather conditions throughout the year. After a mild and dry winter, we had a very rainy spring with mild temperatures but a very warm May. The summer was drier, with normal temperatures and only a few extremely hot days. These conditions led to a premature harvest, and also challenging due to higher humidity levels than usual. Even so, it was possible to maintain a good sanitary state of the grapes.
