Winemaker’s notes
Bright pale yellow colour with green tones, that denote its youth. On the nose, fresh, clean and intense aromas, especially fruity ones (green apple, ineapple and tropical fruits), with a touch of white flowers over a background of hay and aromatic herbs. On the palate the wine is  very  fruity  with  a  balanced  acidity,  it  is intense, elegant and has a long aftertaste.
Service suggestions: Serve at 6 - 8ºC.

The 2013 Chardonnay is an unoaked young-vine cuvée. The nose is clean and expressive, typical cold-fermented Chardonnay, notes of apple and pinneaples. The palate is medium-bodied, with good freshness and acidity, a touch of sweetness, not really excessive. A good Chardonnay. 70,000 bottles produced.

Care was created in the year 2000 by two families coming from the industry and textile business. They adopted the name of Cariñena in Roman times as the name of their winery, where they are advised by winemaker Jesús Navascues. They produce 700,000 bottles per year.
