Don David (Argentina) 2021 Chardonnay
The Don David range are the flagship wines of the Bodega El Esteco estate named in homage to the winery founder David Michel.
Terroir: Each selection in the Don David range is sourced from entirely estate owned vineyards throughout the Cafayate Valley. Vineyards sit at elevations well above 3,000 feet with many sitting above 6,000 feet. The power of the sun at these elevations combined with very little moisture or pests leads to wines of unique purity and concentration.
Vinification: Concentration and varietal expression are the goals of both the red and white wines in this range. The white wines undergo primary fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel vats and just a touch of oak to soften the crisp acidity.
Intense aromas of apple, pineapple, tropical fruits and honey. On the palate, the wine is lush with pear, apple and toasted bread flavors. The wine shows balanced acidity and a clean finish with nutty hints. This great summer sipper will pair well with fish and chicken.
This Chardonnay gets better everytime we taste it...Beatifully balanced.
