Mendoza experienced a very cool beginning of the year, slowing processes slightly. Temperatures began to increase again in March, forcing the grapes to ripen quickly. This allowed for classic flavors of fruit and great complexity from the grapes.
Tasting Note
Bright yellow color, with greenish notes. Tropical aromas of pineapples and peaches. Fresh and crisp mouthfeel, with a round and delicate finish.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with salad, pasta, grilled fish and vegetables.

About the Grape

Though it has a distinctive profile, Chardonnay reflects other factors such as soil composition and vinification technique. Chardonnay is a reliable, hardy and prolific vine whose only real vulnerabilities are frost and uneven development of fruit.
