Bodega Benegas Chardonnay Clara Benegas 2012

Member Review by Argovino:

You could spend all evening just huffing the mildly smoky hay bouquet from this wonderfully different chardonnay. It's truly addictive, and fortunately a touch of smokiness carries through on the tongue as well, though the apricot and pear flavors become more prominent. For fans of headstrong French whites like Corton-Charlemagne, this is a must-try. (AV 88, http://argovino.com/?p=1063)

It is located in the Luján de Cuyo region, carril Ardoz (off route 60), 300 meters from its intersection with the south access to Mendoza, and at 5 kilometers from Finca Libertad. This old winery belonged to the family of Gladys Alurralde Norton, who was the mother of Federico J. Benegas Lynch. Agustín Alvarez, Governor of the Province of Mendoza in those years, finished the construction in 1901. It is one of the few historic relics that remain from the old Mendoza of the end of the XIXth century. It was made of adobe with a stone underground cave to stow casks and it has spacious areas to store bottles both in summer and in winter, for temperature variations are minimal. Read less

Citrus and limes on the nose. Nice and refreshing, the wine offers clean quince and gooseberry flavors. Fresh, although there's a hint of spice on the finish. I'm guessing its all stainless steel, and no oak.

Golden yellow with delicate green reflections. Tropical and delicate fruits aromas. Red apples and pears flavor. It is soft and balanced in the mouth.
