Wine of Mendoza, Argentina
Chardonnay White Argentinian Wine
Attractive golden colour with delicate green hues. Citrus and tropical fruits aromas and flavours combine to create a crisp fresh fruity palate.
Parra Alta is a traditional way to grow grapes, where the vines are tied to grow upwards through the canopy of the surrounding trees.
Fresh white peaches and pineapple intermingle with crisp minerality to create this sensational Chardonnay. Voluptuous in mouth-feel it has a buttery quality from the refined oak aging.
|Region of Origin||Mendoza|
|Type of Closure||Screwcap|
|Wine Maker||Rafael Miranda|
Grapes were de-stemmed and crushed. Static free run previous the fermentation.
Founded in 1996 by Vina Concha Y Toro, Trivento Bodegas y Vinedos produces brand-name wines under their own label. The company has created an ample portfolio of wines distinguished for preserving the character of the Mendoza terroir. These wines have received numerous recognitions at international contests and in wine industry publications. In their short trajectory, Trivento has become the most diversely distributed Argentine wine brand in the world positioning the company among the preeminent Argentine exporters.
The Mendoza Province is one of Argentina's most important wine regions, accounting for nearly two-thirds of the country's entire wine production. Located in the eastern foothills of the Andes, in the shadow of Mount Aconcagua, vineyards are planted at some of the highest altitudes in the world with the average site located 1,970-3,610 feet (600-1, 100 meters) above sea level. The principal wine producing areas fall into two main departments- Maipú and Luján which includes Argentina's first delineated appellation established in 1993 in Luján de Cuyo. Situated in the upper Mendoza valley, where the river is half-way through its journery from the Andes mountains to the eastern plains, may Lujan de Cuyo vineyards sit at altitudes of around 1000m (3280ft). Malbec in particular is successful in Lujan de Cuyo, but the appellation also produces good Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Torrontes. The majority of the vineyards are on alluvial soils; sandy or stony surfaces on clay subtrata.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 3 years
Contains: Sulphur Dioxide/Sulphites
