ALPATACO CHARDONNAY

 

Alpataco, is an indigenous bush that symbolizes the tenacity of life in the Patagonian steppe.
The low yields of the vineyard and a careful winemaking produce fresh and delicate wines that with minimal intervention during the winemaking genuinely express the typicity of the varietal
Pale greenish yellow to the eye this lively Chardonnay has seen no oak ageing to preserve the flavor of the fruit. A prolonged contact with the lees with periodic stirring added roundness and to its very fresh, fruity mouth-feel. Apple and lemon nuances combined with hints of pineapple and honey.
