The perfect balance between a Burgundian and California-style Chardonnay from the high altitude “G Lot” in Gualtallary at 4,900 feet above sea level.
Beautiful pale-gold color with enticing aromas of lemon crème, baking spices and some notes of dulce de leche. The aromas carry through to the palate, and are joined by hints of tropical fruit, spiced baked pear, and a stony/mineral flavor that creates a stylish wine that seems part New and part Old World.
Pairs well with most fish, lobster, crab, chicken, and even many pork preparations. Particularly recommended with dishes using sautéed wild mushrooms or butter sauces. This wine will age well for years in a cellar.
The 2013 G Lot Chardonnay is a barrel-fermented Chardonnay from juice obtained pressing whole clusters and matured in barrique (20% new) for one year. It feels quite exotic, with notes of tangerine, peach and a touch of honey. In Gualtallary from mid-February on there is a morning mist that might develop botrytis in the grapes to provide that character. The palate is sharp, focused and has nicely defined flavors, good length and a chalky minerality.The Wine Advocate August 2015
Medium straw-yellow color. Musky, truffley aromas of pineapple, citrus zest, spices and herbs. Rich, broad, pliant and ripe, with tropical fruit flavors complicated by a continuing herbaceous nuance and substantial vanillin oak. Doesn't have the depth or lift of the best vintages but this still more satisfying than the overwhelming majority of Argentine chardonnays. Finishes with chewy vanillin oak and a touch of minerality.Vinous March 2014
