Casa Valduga Chardonnay Gran Reserva 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Eight months in oak, split between French and Romanian oak Honey, a nice spice and toast top note, focused on entry, nice honey notes on entry but they are light, fresh style, very light creamy edge, bright acids, crisp apple fruit a bit of lemon curd, light pineapple notes not he backend, firm backend, finishes dry and determined, with a little wood tannin adding some mouth grab, fairly aromatic finish with a touch of honeycomb and lightly cooked heirloom apple fruit, toasty notes really linger on finish though they’re neither sweet nor pronounced just very light and elegant. 89pts

Casa Valduga:
One of the biggest Brazilian producers of fine wine. Lots of technology and proffessional efforts make its large range of wines always very reliable. Its Gran Reserva Brut and Nature are fantastic.

Was looking for a dry, medium to light body un-oaked, refreshing chardonnay with a bit of incisiveness to be used as an aperitif or to cut through a rich fish dish. In this respect, it meets these criteria. This is a well-made wine. However, the flavor appears somewhat attenuated and could use a bit more of the Chardonnay characteristics.
