Viñedo de Los Vientos Chardonnay Blend Atlàntida Estival 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

A delicious blend of Chardonnay Gewurztraminer and Moscato Bianco. Great with seafood and al fresco dishes. Medium yellow-gold. Wonderful aromas of orange peel honey lichee flowers and a suggestion of tropical fruits. Plump and pineappley in the mouth but with an edge of acidity and some muscaty floral lift giving this fruity filled but dry wine a refreshing quality. Finishes clean and lively. This blend of Estival is made in stainless steel and sees no oak. [Stephen Tanzer]

Surprising Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer and Muscato Blanco. Golden with a floral nose and succulent agave nectar. Nice acidity, tart without pucker, dry and rich, but clean. Lastly, it has a bright sparkling minerality to just confuse you a little bit further. A wine of opposites and something one would drink if you could jump into a garden picnic scene in an Italian tapestry pillow.

just enjoyed with a fine beef stew. Even my wife who does not like reds much thought this was excellent with complex flavors.

The beauty starts in the color - with a deep straw yellow hue. It continues with the aroma of orange peel and touch of almond. On the palate is a round lush touch of orange peel again along with a hint of winter spices and nice bright finish.

Unusual wine - at my tasting they either really like it or not at all. I enjoyed it because 1st time I had it. Tannic and acidic but not in an offensive way.

Tannat from Uruguay does not have the same complexity of flavor as those from Madiran in my opinion. I prefer Pierre Laplace Madiran.

The nose delivers overwhelming aromas of autumn leaves and earth, while the palate is black licorice and wild mushrooms. - Winery ** Only 8 in Stock **

We highly doubt you would guess where this wine came from if you tasted it blind. You'd certainly note its clean, unoaked New World style. This is a dry white blend that’s highly aromatic and fresh, with floral and apple fruit. It’s also delicious.

A rarity from Uruguay Tannat is unique to just a handful of wine regions world wide predominately blended in the wines of Madiran in southwest France. It is in Uruguay however bottled as a 100% varietal where it arguably finds its most polished expression. Redish-black in the glass this young tannic red is beautifully balanced and silky on the palate. Deep dark chocolate espresso and blackberry flavors swirl around a structured frame with plenty of potential for aging. No shortage of character here yet the fruit is pure and alluring with skilled crafting.

We're no etymologists, but we think it would be fair to say that the red Tannat grape got its name from the tannins in its skins. Yes, the tannins in this wine are firm - but boy, are they good with anything meat-based, especially if it's grilled. So go ahead: lug the barbecue out to your fire escape and enjoy.
