Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml
All Bemberg wines fermented with indigenous yeasts, and the 2016 La Linterna Chardonnay Finca El Tomillo – Parcela #1 Gualtallary is from the shallower plot within that vineyard, which gave the wine a chalky texture. There is little impact from the oak here (only part of the volume matured in oak), and there is varietal character, in a clean and precise way. The acidity is nicely integrated in a lemony way. They first produced this in 2015. 2,111 bottles were filled in March 2019.
Beautiful aromas of toffee, cooked apple and pear with hits of butterscotch and praline. Full body, round and juicy white with truffle, apple and cream. Drink now.
Impressive for a Mendoza Chardonnay. Has a balanced fruity and mineral edge to it. Fresh and well constructed for a first vintage, definitely worthy of cellaring, but no drama if you decide to open straight away.
