Tamaya Wine - Estate Line - Chardonnay


Bright and intense pale yellow in color. The nose expresses ripe white and tropical fruits, backed by citrus and mineral hints. Same atmosphere in the mouth, voluptuous and fresh at the same time offering a long after taste, taking back all the aromatic personality.

Chardonnay

Vinification: The grapes have been harvested between the second week of March and the second of April. After the grapes were destemmed and pressed in a pneumatic press, the juice was macerated with the skins for an average of 4 hours. Extracted at low pressure, the juice is statically decanted in stainless steel tanks until a limpidity of between 150 and 250 NTU is obtained. The juice is then transferred to a fermentation tank where selected yeasts are added to bring out the natural aromas of the grape. Alcoholic fermentation took place at 15 16 degrees C (59 61 degrees F) and allowed to remain in the tanks with carbonic gas and daily less stirring for an additional ten days. The finished wine was stabilized for proteins and tartaric acid, filtered, and bottled.

Tasting Note: Here the variety finds a faithful reflection of its typicity, beginning with its intense and brilliant golden straw color. The nose offers a blend of white fruits and citrus, such as apples, pears, mandarin orange, along with a refreshing touch of lemon. Subtle notes of butter, hazelnut, and floral honey flesh out its solid identity. It is impressive on the palate, both round and lush to just the right degree, while its natural acidity and mineral accents conserve its crucial freshness. Citrus notes return on the finish and deliver good tonicity with a touch of dried fruits and honey enhanced by crisp mineral notes.

Best Enjoyed: Best consumed within two years

Winemaker: Jose Pablo Martin
