Diamandes de Uco Chardonnay 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Nestling in the foothills of the Andes Mountain, at an altitude of 1,100 meters, the Bodega DiamAndes benefits from an ideal terroir: a temperate climate thanks to the altitude, and that together with its sand-gravel-clay soils, allow Malbec - the King of Argentinean grapes- to fully express itself. A very bright chard full of undertones of citrus, melon and ripe apple. Medium bodied with a lovely finish.

Sweet peach and sharper nectarine mingle in the nose, but the flavor of this wine is all lemon curd, with a smidgen of toffee thrown in. Not deep, but tasty and as candy-like as chardonnays get. (AV 87, http://argovino.com/?p=795)



Tasting Notes:

DiamAndes de Uco Chardonnay is a blend of single varietal Chardonnay. This grape variety achieves full expression on DiamAndes' high altitude, complex, very well-drained terroirs. Developing ripe, varied flavours of tropical fruit, white-fleshed fruit and citrus notes, the mid-palate is full-bodied and rich with good length. The special characteristics of the DiamAndes vineyard bring freshness and balance, adding a unique dimension. This wine is both supple and full-bodied, with a fine structure and generous volume, while at the same time being immediately enjoyable to drink.
