ALIKASE  Chardonnay



Tasting Note

The nose is fresh and light, with elegant aromas of ripe peach, lemon and a hint of tropical fruit. On the palate, a dry, medium-bodied white wine with a lovely underlying minerality thanks to Salaparuta soil; notes of zesty pineapple and nuts with a long, clean finish. 

 

Appearance

Pale straw yellow

 

Vintage

2018 summer was characterized by abundant rainfall, which resulted in later maturity and harvest dates.

 

Vineyard

Deep alluvial clay soil, whit good content of limestone. West-facing gentle slopes.

 

Winemaking

The fruit is individually handpicked and whole bunch pressed to ensure purity and concentration of flavors. Fermentation occurs in stainless-steel tanks. Once vinification is finished, the wine is aged ‘sur lie’ for three months to add extra texture and complexity before being bottled.  

 

Serving Temperature

Best served at 15° C.

 

Food Accompaniments

Perfect accompaniment to seafood, fish dishes and white meat; It is a great match for tropical fruits, especially pineapple!
