General Information

Nivarius soils are formed by a sandy surface layer 30 to 50 cm thick, resting on a subsoil of limestone, fragmented 2 meters or more deep, which was formed in the Cretaceous period. This is a basic soil type (pH>8), with excellent structure, porosity and drainage, considered for centuries in Burgundy and other prestigious wine areas as ideal for the production of great wines.

Tasting Notes Nivarius Finca el Arca

Clean and bright with a straw yellow color with reflections of the same color. In nose it is complex, elegant of high intensity, dominated by notes of white fruit, balsamic and a background of creamy oak. As it is oxygenated, it acquires more complexity with mineral and bay leaf notes. In the mouth it has a dry entrance, with a vertical passage through the mouth in which the good acidity is perfectly integrated by its glyceric character. In retronasal, balsamic, citrus and floral notes appear with a saline finish and a long aftertaste.
