Terrazas de Los Andes Chardonnay Alto del Plata 2012

Member Review by Jimmy Cocktail:

This wine was quite disappointing as there were heavy notes of sulfur coming from the wine when it was first poured. After several minutes of swirling and agitation the sulfur calmed down quite a bit but it was very overwhelming in the beginning. The wine itself had soft acidity with warm weather fruit tones of apple, peach and pineapple with some oak and butter. It would have been a nice $17 bottle of Chardonnay without the sulfur fault.

In the late 1950s, Moët & Chandon, a subsidiary of LVMH, sent Renaud Poirier, its Oenology Director, to Latin America to research the region’s potential for world-class wine production. After traveling around the region, Poirier visited Luján de Cuyo, in Mendoza. Highly impressed by the local conditions for winemaking and the presence of excellent high elevation vineyards, Poirier and Moët & Chandon decided to set up its first ever vineyards outside France. After decades of experiencing with sparkling wines production, in 1999, Moët Hennessy Wine Estates and Bodegas Chandon Argentina opened Terrazas de los Andes Winery - a varietal still-wines initiative based on its emblematic high-elevation vineyards, fed by the Andes meltwater.

Vino rico pero no muy maderoso

Ripe but focused, with dark berry and fig fruit backed by sweet, bacony toast and spice notes. Drink now. 64,000 cases made

Lime-orange scents waft around a core of ripened pear and litchee.

Farbe: Goldgelb Fruchtbetont mit Aromen von frischer Grapefruit, Mandarine, Pfirsich und Birne sowie exotische Noten von Kokosnuss und Ananas. Ein frischer Chardonnay, am Gaumen durchgängige Frucht mit anregender Säure und mineralischem Hintergrund.

Wine Tasting NotesIntense golden yellow. Concentrated ripe fruit aromas, especially apricot and peaches, combine with tropical hints of mango and pineapple. Fermentation in new oak barrels gives the wine its richly toasted vanilla and caramel aroma. Nuances of dried fruits, hazelnuts and honey provide the wine with a delicious complexity. Full-bodied, rounded and dense, yet somehow crisp at the same time. Tropical flavors give way to a flinty mineral quality. This wine stands out for its smooth and complex structure, resulting in a long and lingering finish.

Goldgelbe Farbe, in der Nase frisch mit Noten von Zitrone und tropischen Früchten, im Gaumen schön ausgewogen mit Aromen von Aprikose und exotischen Früchten, frisches Finale.

Wine Tasting NotesYellow hue of medium intensity. Intense fruit. Citrus aromas stand out, especially lime. Tropical fruits reminiscent of pineapple and banana blend harmoniously with aromas of vanilla and caramel. Medium bodied, rounded and smooth on the palette. This wine is intense but soft and easy to drink. The aromas linger on the palette offering a lengthy finish.
