Valentin Bianchi Famiglia Bianchi Chardonnay 2004
from Argentina, South America
Valentin Bianchi's Chardonnay grapes come from Estate Dona Elsa and Las Paredes Estate, which is situated in the San Rafael DOC of Mendoza at 730 to 790 meters above sea level. The soil is sandy calcareous of alluvial origins.
The color of this wine, a soft yellow with a faint golden hue, is immediately attractive. Aromatically, the complexity produced by the right amount of new oak, sur lies againg, malolactic fermentation and exceptional fruit is apparent. Alluring hints of vanilla, apples, and spices in the nose lead to similiar flavors on the palate, with the addition of coconut and cloves. There is a rich, silky mouth feel, with refreshing acid balance and a long, pleasant finish.
This wine should be served slightly chilled, with white meats, seafood and pasta in cream sauce.
