Tasting Notes

A golden Chardonnay with greenish hues. On the nose, it displays noticeable tropical aromas such as pineapple, as well as notes of white flowers. It is a vibrant wine on the palate, a sensation accentuated by its refreshing acidity.

Fish, seafood, white meats, cream-based sauces and Asian food.

Early harvest (during the first week of February), which allows us to obtain a must with low sugar concentration and, subsequently, a naturally low-alco-hol, reduced-calories wine. Direct pressing of bunches and destemming. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at around 12°C (54°F) with selected yeasts. In contact with its lees within stainless steel tanks for three months.

Grapes grown in the Uco Valley (Mendoza) at an average elevation of 1,050 m.

Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
Alcohol: 9%
Acidity: 6.4 g/L.

    "Lots of green berries and lime citrus. Elegant on the palate with bright, mouthwatering acidity. Elegant and incisive but not lacking any texture. A low-alcohol chardonnay with just 9% alcohol. Early picking and special yeast used. A very successful low-alcohol wine. Drink now."
