Rating
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Oct 2012)
The 2011 Chardonnay comes from vines planted at around 1,000 meters in Agrelo in Lujan de Cuyo. Around 30% undergoes malolactic fermentation, and it is raised in second fill French barriques. It has a light nose that needs more fruit intensity, although it unfurls nicely with rigorous swirling, offering light peach and apricot aromas. The palate has more to offer with ripe apricot and nectarine notes on the entry and a slight viscosity that caresses the mouth towards the crisp, “patisserie” finish. Drink now-2015. ”

Wine maker notes
Alluvial soils irrigated with water from the Andes Mountain Range. 950 meters above sea level. Vineyard conducted by overhead trellis system, early shoot positioning to allow a correct airing and sunlight reception of the grape, rational thinning of clusters, analytical control of physiological and polyphenolic maturity, harvest planning based on grape tasting in the vineyard. Double selection of grape clusters and berries, destemmer, gentle crushing, free run juice, fermentation with autochthonous yeasts, prolonged maceration based on tastings, spontaneous malolactic fermentation, soft pomace pressing, auto clarifying racking, natural stabilization, bottling in winery.
