Due to its delicate vinification process this pale yellow Chardonnay offers layer upon layer of intense aromas such as fresh fruit, citrus, and floral notes framed by fine herbal notes. Oak fermentation and aging contribute aromas of toast, toffee and hazelnut, complemented by the wine's complex and elegant aromatic profile. Big-bodied and fat on the palate, with enough acidity to lend freshness, enhance its fruity flavors, and promise plenty of cellaring potential.
"This is dense and complex with sliced peach, honey, nutmeg, rosemary and lemon curd. Full body plus wonderful flavors and a long, long finish."
"The 2011 Chardonnay Aconcagua Costa sees eight months lees ageing and a prudent 10% new oak. It has light pineapple and green apple aromas on the nose with fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, light white peach and tangerine flavors that segue into a refined finish. Drink now-2016.
