Gran Chardonnay

Tasting note

SINGLE VINEYARD

Made ​​with grapes from vineyards from 1,100 m.a.s.l in Cordon del Plata, Tupungato. Transparent and enthralling in appearance, golden yellow with green sparkles. Emphasizes balanced peaches, pears and citrus aromas on the nose. The fermentation in French oak barrels unroasted and aging on lees give subtle notes of vanilla and coconut. Sweet and creamy, the ripe fruit and good acidity invites us to continue drinking.
