About This Wine:

Grapes are cooled and carried to the pneumatic press at the minimum possible temperature. Free-run juice fermented at 15º to 16 ºC. Finally, blend is made, clarified, cold stabilized and filtered.

Part of the wine is aged in barrels. Stirring of the lees for about four to six months. Filtration by plate and sterile membrane to ensure the microbiological stability of the wine.


What Does It Taste Like?

Very intense yellow color with some golden tones. The aroma of this Chardonnay is fruity, reminiscent of honey and toasted barrels with lactic character. Though this wine has positively evolved in the nose, in the mouth is fresh, tropical and complex flavors. Upon tasting, the wine develops quickly into a palate filling, rich sensation of complexity and lasting flavors. A very well-balanced wine that is tough to stop drinking.


Ratings / Reviews:

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Bright yellow. Melon, peach and nectarine on the nose, with a subtle spicy quality coming up with air. Initially pliant, gently sweet honeydew and pit fruit flavors become a bit hard-edged but offer good palate coverage. Finishes with good length and an echo of spices." - Josh Raynolds (Mar/Apr 10)
