The chardonnay grapes that go into Arzuaga’s Fan D.Oro are hand-harvested and lightly pressed before fermentation takes place in 500 litre oak vats. Straw yellow with a golden edge in the glass, on the nose there is plenty of pastry, jasmine, fig and baked apple with a touch of dried fruit. An unctuous sensation on the palate, this is a full-bodied white with fresh acidity to balance.
Bodegas Arzuaga is located in Valladolid, in the middle of the Ribera del Duero Denomination of Origin. The setting where the wines produced by the winery are born can be found in the La Planta estate, a property that the Arzuaga family owns in the Valladolid town of Quintanilla de Onésimo. This estate has a privileged situation for the cultivation of the vine, since its vines receive the sun and the necessary humidity for the perfect ripening of the grape. La Planta is a place where the flora and fauna of the area coexist. A flora made up of pines, holm oaks and junipers and a fauna made up of wild boars and deer. This coexistence is, without a doubt, the confirmation of the love that the Arzuaga family feels for the world of nature. The farm consists of 1,400 hectares, a luxury in the middle of the Denomination and Golden Mile of the Ribera del Duero.
