TASTING NOTE

Bright in the glass, this wine has medium intense aromas of honeyed-lemon, peaches and tropical fruit giving it an immediate attractiveness. A refreshing crispness on the mid-palate and a smooth mouth feel combine to make an enjoyable, vibrant wine.

The grapes for this wine are grown on the Doña Elsa estate, situated in Rama Caída, San Rafael, Mendoza at 750 metres above sea level. Rama Caída is among the coolest areas of San Rafael, with sandy calcareous soils of alluvial origin. The yield was 12 tonnes per hectare.

The grapes were picked by hand and then crushed and pressed. Fermentation lasted ten days and took place at 15ºC. The Chardonnay spent time ageing on medium toast French oak staves, followed by one month in bottle before release.
