Region

The great plain of La Mancha, to the south of Madrid and east of Toledo, represents the largest viticultural area of Spain. The climate is arid, extreme in both summer and winter, tempered by strong prevailing winds. The widely planted white Arien grape variety is slowly losing favour to Tempranillo, Shiraz and Garnacha and the old wineries are giving way to gleaming modern facilities heralding a revolution for the region`s winemaking.

Producer

Josep Masachs Llorach, owned vineyards in Vilafranca del Penedès as early as 1920. During this time he was one of the pioneers of the area producing still wines, his son took over his father’s hobby and made it his profession and turned his house, known to everyone as Cal Cabanyes, into his manufacturing center in the 1950s. Nowadays, the fourth generation of the family has arrived with an open and innovative mindset. Under the watchful eye of Joan Masachs and led by Alex Ruíz Masachs – hardworking, curious and creative with extensive experience in enology and global sales – family values have been reinterpreted to transmit them through more environmentally friendly products.
Tasting Notes
The wise monkey on the label comes from the teachings in Toshogu temple `do not see bad behavior as natural` - A Japanese saying to avoid spreading evil. La Chita is an interesting young style of wine made from a blend of 40% Macabeo and 60% Sauvignon Blanc. Intense floral and ripe stone fruits aromas are followed by a fresh and zesty palate with notes of cut apple, white blossom, grapefruit and a touch of pineapple. This is a very expressive wine with a lovely texture and a crisp balanced finish.

Food
Perfect served chilled on its own or with a fresh summer salad.
