Bodega DiamAndes / Perlita Chardonnay Valle de Uco / 750mL
Valle de Uco, Mendoza
AREA UNDER VINES
Clay and sand with a large quantity of pebbles in the foothills of the Andes. Altitude of 1,100m.
Manual harvest with cooling in a cold room and hand sorting. No crushing, Global concept gravity, inverted press followed by barrel fermentation and 10 months of aging.
The Chardonnay achieves full expression in the high altitude and complex terroirs. Developing ripe, varied flavors of tropical fruit, white-fleshed fruit and citrus notes, the mid-palate is full-bodied and rich with good length. This wine is both supple and full-bodied, with a fine structure and generous volume.
Pairs great with grilled white meats and fish.
