Terrazas Reserva Chardonnay Tupungato 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

In Mendoza, 3,900 feet above sea level there exists the ideal growing area for the vineyards that give origin to the Terrazas de los Andes Chardonnay. It is the unique combination of altitude, dry soils, sunny climate and cool breezes from the Andes that allows the Chardonnay grape to become its most expressive.

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.
