Trapiche Broquel Chardonnay Mendoza 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine hails from Mendoza's Uco Valley where a cooler climate, combined with alluvial soils with underground pebbles, yields wines with ripe fruit and subtle minerality. Produced from estate vineyards that range from ten to twenty years old, situated very close to the Andes with an altitude of 4,100 fee where frost is often a significant risk, cool evening temperatures keep the naturally rich flavors of the Chardonnay in check, producing elegantly balanced wines. Bolder than Burgundy and crisper than California, flavors run toward tropical fruit and baked apple, aromas of Asian pear and red apples, combined with well integrated oak, as just 25 percent of the wine spends time in new French and American oak barrels.

Honeysuckle and peach aromas are light. Flavors of green apple and banana, cream, peach and grapefruit. There's a fair bit of citrus character and acid accompanying the fruit, showing that this was a cooler climate with a different aging profile than some of Chardonnay's more oaked expressions. A full minute later there's still a bit of an acidic bite.
