De Martino Chardonnay Legado Reserva 2008
Manually harvested in late March, the bunches were further sorted and selected upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation took place over a span of 7-9 days at 18-21°C. Only partial (10%) malolactic fermentation occurred. The wine was aged in new French oak barriques of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd use for 11 months, followed by an additional 4-6 months in bottle after it was filtered, fined, and refrigerated.
An elegant, fruity bouquet expresses notes of grapefuit and banana. Plesant mineral aromas are present as well On the palate, it is full-flavored and fresh with excellent minerality and acidity. A creamy component coats the palate through the lingering finish.
