Chardonnay

Vintage

  • 2017
    • Winemaker's comments:

      This wine is a bright golden-yellow in color with fruity aromas of peaches and melon. The palate presents good volume and balanced acidity with medium-high persistence and fruitiness that make this a pleasing, easy-drinking wine.

    • Vinification:

      The grapes were machine harvested, and the must was cold macerated at 3º–4ºC for 3 days prior to undergoing a smooth and controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 14ºC. The new wine remained on its lees for a month to develop greater volume and character. The wine was finally blended and lightly filtered prior to bottling.

      • Comments: Bright straw. Lemon, honeydew, anise and smoke on the nose. Firm, dry and focused, with tangy citrus fruit flavors gaining sweetness with air. Slightly ungiving on the finish, which leaves a sweet citrus note behind.

      • Comments: "this is a nice little Chardonnay for hose fastened to the grape. It starts with ripe pineapple and apple aromas, and next you get tropical fruit, citrus and banana flavors. Medium in size and good for what it strives to be."
