Cono Sur 20 Barrels Chardonnay 2007
Michael Franz / Wine Review Online / USA
20 Barrels Limited Edition Chardonnay
This was the first white variety we added to the 20 Barrels range and it was a success right from the start. Its most distinguished feature seems to be its well-achieved balance between a citrus side and complex minerality: a combination that makes it quite an extraordinary wine. Bright golden yellow-green colour, notes of citrus fruits and white peach join slight toasty flavours, which suggest oak aging. A mineral, elegant and refined Chardonnay signed by its lively grace, balanced acidity and fresh, yet complex palate.
Ideal to accompany naturally oily and/or white meats such as duck, pork, lamb and salmon; or pasta, and white smoked cuts. This is a well-liked aperitif wine, either on its own or with a cheese plate, like mild Cheddar, Gruyere, goat cheese, Parmesan and Provolone.
