Beautiful pale-gold color with enticing aromas of lemon creme, baking spices and some tropical notes. The aromas carry through to the palate, and are joined by hints of tropical fruit, spiced baked pear, and a stony/mineral flavor that creates a stylish wine that seems part New and part Old World. Finishes long with just a kiss of oak. This Chard has a lot of flavor, but manages never to lose its balance. Pairs well with most fish, lobster, crab, chicken, and even many pork preparations. Particularly recommended with dishes using sauteed wild mushrooms or butter sauces.
"The Chardonnay has arguably been one of the 3-4 best produced in Argentina for a number of years and the 2007 Chardonnay is no exception. It was 100% barrel-fermented, went through full malolactic fermentation, and was aged for 12 months in 50% new French oak on its lees. Light gold-colored, it has an outstanding bouquet of spiced apple and poached pear, with tropical fruits in the background. Medium to full-bodied, mineral and oak notes emerge on the palate accompanied by lively acidity, layered flavors, and excellent balance. Drink this classy Chardonnay over the next 3-4 years."
The Wine Advocate
"Pale, bright straw-old color. Complex aromas of peach, lemon cream and creme brulee, with hints of lees and tropical fruit. Rich, broad and fresh, with sexy oak notes and solid minerality giving shape to this fairly full-bodied wine, whose flavors of pear and peach are quintessential chardonnay. The minerally, spicy, persistent finish shows a lovely light touch. Very chardonnay."
