The vineyards for this Argentine white wine can be found at an altitude of 1250 meters in the wine district of Tupungato. The Chardonnay grapes grow in peace between the attachments of the Andes mountains. At this altitude, the grapes receive sufficient heat from the sun, but also a pleasant freshness that ensures that the grapes do not ripen too quickly. The melt water that comes from the snowy mountain peaks creates a natural and pure irrigation for the vines. The harvest for these Chardonnay grapes is done entirely by hand and takes place in the first week of March. Due to this manual harvest, a strict selection is made, so that only the best fruit ends up in the wine. Before maturing the wine, this delicious Chardonnay is allowed to mature in French oak barrels for a period of 8 months. This maturation ensures the full and beautiful creamy character.

The Terrazas de Los Andes Reserva Chardonnay is a full wood-aged Chardonnay. in the glass we immediately see the beautiful straw yellow color with a beautiful golden sparkle. In the scent aromas of peach, pineapple, orange blossom and a hint of vanilla. The mild greasy layer provides a pleasant and full experience. The rich taste nuances of tropical fruit, with peach and passion fruit in the foreground, are pleasantly balanced by a slight hint of citrus and vanilla.
