Terrazas de Los Andes Chardonnay Tupungato Reserva 2007
Wine Tasting Notes Intense 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.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
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.
