Blend and Origin
Terrazas de los Andes Chardonnay 2016
Grapes from Uco Valley terroirs at altitudes of 4,101 feet lend freshness and delicacy to this chardonnay. In 2016, colder spring with delay in bud break, rains during flowering, and numerous overcast days resulted in delayed maturity and lower yields. Meticulous vineyard management ensured ideal grape ripeness. After partial fermentation in oak barrels and eight months of maturation, the wine reached its optimum elegance and balance.
More to try
Light, fresh flavours complement the wine’s bright acidity
Try sautéed prawns with mango over a salad of bitter greens, goat cheese and toasted almonds. Grilled rock lobster tails will also work well.
Opt for sweet yet savoury slow-braised pork shoulder with a pear and sweet potato purée, or poached salmon and fresh green beans.
Finish with honey panna cotta and praline ice cream.
