Santa Julia Chardonnay Organic Argentina 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

"The grapes for the 2016 Chardonnay Reserva are now sourced from the cooler Valle de Uco (mostly Vista Flores and Tupungato) and they have removed the all makeup from the wine. It fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and was bottled unoaked. It didn't go through malolactic fermentation to keep the freshness. It's a naked Chardonnay, restrained, clean and fresh, with notes of white fruit, some balsamic tones and a sharp palate with refreshing, almost citric acidity. It feels like a serious Chardonnay, showing typicity." -Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

Bodega Santa Julia:
Santa Julia is a label offshoot of Familia Zuccardi wines from Mendoza, Argentina. The wine is named after Julia Zuccardi, daughter of chief winemaker José Alberto Zuccardi. The wines are organic (although not certified under US law) and handmade, with close attention to detail. This is an affordable range of dry and sparkling wines as well as a late harvest Torontes/Viognier blend called simply “Tardio.”

First of a flight of Argentinians. Smells lightly of apricot. Not flavorful at all. Had an earthy mineral taste to it that I did not enjoy. Flat wine. Not a hint of Chardonnay.
