Winemaker's Notes:

Only 30% of this Chardonnay spends time in oak barrels, the other 70% is fermented in stainless steel tanks. Less oak influence gives this Chardonnay bright clean fruit flavors and less buttery characteristics. It is bright yellow in color with green highlights; this Premium Chardonnay is a fresh and lively wine. Aromas of tropical fruits with a delicate toasted bread note. On the palate the wine is velvety, round and full-bodied with a long, lingering finish. Enjoy this wine with fresh seafood salads, white fish with lemons & capers, roasted herbed chicken and mild cheeses.

About Alta Vista:

Founded in 1997 and owned by the d'Aulan family, former owners of the Piper-Heidsieck Champagne house, Alta Vista is guided by the philosophy of expressing the best terroirs of Argentina and highlighting the typical Argentine varieties: Malbec and Torrontes. The winemaking team's system of terroir management led Alta Vista to produce the very first single-vineyard Malbecs in Argentina. Alta Vista has gained the respect of other wine professionals both in Argentina and in other wine-producing countries on the basis of the quality of its wines, which have been internationally classified as being among Argentina's finest.
