Chaval is the local Valencia name for a ‘youngster’ and the Chaval Blanco is the most fun and carefree of the whites from this great Finca. An organic Chardonnay Moscatel blend from Valencia. Bright floral soft fruit, hints of crisp apple and some ripe pear notes. Easy but with lots going on to keep you coming back for more.

Adolfo De Las Heras Marín, acquired one of the most ecologically important wine making estates in Valencia in 1985.
The El Renegado estate was 540 hectares of forest and vineyards, of which 80% was planted with 40 year old Bobal vines. Adolfo pioneered the introduction of other grapes such as merlot and cabernet.
It was Adolfo’s son also called Adolfo who upon taking over the winery in the late nineties, revolutionised the quality of production, importing additional varieties such as syrah, chardonnay, cabernet franc and updating the Barrel cellar and bottling line, as well as transforming the old Farmstead into a beautiful Hotel.
From the late nineties until 2006, Adolfo De Las Heras meticulously and expertly shaped the estate and the winery to his vision: The use of modern methods and producing limited numbers of the top quality wines.
Thus was born Nodus, one of the most significant estates of the D.O.
