Colour: golden yellow with green shades.
Nose: intense and complex. Notes of ripe fruit, especially apricot and peaches, combine with further notes of honey, hazelnut and almond. These aromas are enhanced by delicate hints of vanilla, a product of its barrel ageing.Palate: this wine stands out for its balance and harmony. Its body, volume and roundness provide it with a great presence and lengthy finish.
“The well-oaked, barrel-fermented 2015 Reserva Chardonnay was sourced from vines in Gualtallary in the Valle de Uco. It's quite oaky even if only half of the wine fermented in oak and matured in barrel for eight months. But it has freshness and complexity and a great mouthfeel. It does not have very high acidity, so the sensation of freshness is most probably provided by the chalky soils, and no doubt the early harvest. It's a textbook example of its style, reflecting variety, place and vintage. 120,000 bottles produced.”
