Luca Chardonnay 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): The new releases include one white wine, the 2009 Chardonnay, always an outstanding value. It was barrel-fermented, went through full malolactic fermentation, and was aged sur lie for 14 months in 30% new French oak. Aromas of buttered popcorn, poached pear, and spiced apple inform the nose of a creamy-textured, spicy, ripe, medium-bodied wine. This nicely proportioned, lengthy effort will provide enjoyment over the next 4-5 years. (Dec 2011)

Correctly chilled this is a killer Chardonnay and completes the line of Laura's excellent malbec and Sarah offerings

A Chardonnay wine from Mendoza in Argentina. 2009 Luca Chardonnay 750ml


External Review
04/18/2013

Bright light yellow. Aromas of peach, apricot, nutmeg and flowers, complemented by oaky nuances (30% new). Fat, rich and sweet but with solid balancing acidity. A full-throttle fruit bomb with impressive depth and 3D texture, from a Gualtallary vineyard planted at 4,700 feet. The pH here is a very reasonable 3.2 in spite of the vines’ long hang and a hint of botrytis.
