Saurus Estate

ALTO LIMAY CHARDONNAY

 

When Familia Schroeder winery was being built, workers uncovered the bones of a large herbivore dinosaur. The singularity of the find, inspired the name SAURUS for these premium set of wines.
Saurus Estate Chardonnay has a distinct greenish yellow color. In the nose, citric and tropical fruit aromas combine with delicate touches of vanilla brought by the oak. In the mouth it is fruity and balanced, with a pleasant acidity.
