Michel Torino ‘Don David Reserve’ Cafayate Valley Chardonnay 2012

Chardonnay from Argentina
Review Date : 12-Feb-2014
Hand-picked fruit, 20% indigenous yeast fermented to 14.0% alc. and 3.6 g/L RS, 30% of the wine aged 6 months in new American oak with MLF. Bright, very pale straw-green colour, light on rim. This has an elegant, but intense nose of green citrus and yellow stonefruit with subtle background savoury, nutty oak elements, and a steeliness. Medium-bodied, light flavours of citrus and stonefruits combine with creamy, nutty, barrel-ferment textures to provide a rich core with good palate presence and richness. The mouthfeel is cut by crisp, fresh acidity and the wine has balance and excellent vitality and flow that leads to a subtly rich and long finish. This is a refreshing, green citrus-fruited Chardonnay with subtle creaminess and richness. Serve with seafood and poultry over the next 3+years. 17.0/20 Feb 2014 RRP $17.99
