Chardonnay 2019

As a tribute to the land and to those who work it, Luigi Bosca have worked more than 110 years to understand the intention of the vine. The passion of four generations of the same family, shown in Bodega Luigi Bosca’s collection, reflects the result of an ambitious effort started many years ago: the wish to express the thorough version of the essence of Argentine wine.

Terroir: Sourced from Bosca’s east facing La Linda vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo- Maipo. Vines average 40 years and sit at an elevation of 780 meters. Soils here are well drained and shallow based with a mix of limestone and silt.

Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested and meticulously sorted and destemmed upon arrival at the winery. Grapes are pressed for 6 hours followed by a cool maceration for 24 hours. The majority of the juice is fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel vats while a small percentage ferments in new and second use French oak. 50% of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation.

Additional Information

Golden yellow color, with aromas of pineapple, mango and watermelon. Notes of honey and toasted bread. Subtle vanilla hints contributed by ageing in French oak casks. Rich and emphatic, it stirs sweet sensations. Pairs well with fish, seafood, white meat, soft cheese, smoked spicy food, partridge, quail and roasted turkey.

    "A very clean, bright white with sliced-pineapple, apple and cooked-lemon character, following through to a medium body, crisp acidity and a creamy-textured palate. Drink now."

    "A blend of Uco Valley terroirs 30% aged in 3rd-use barrels, the core aromas of the 2019 Chardonnay Luigi Bosca are pear and apple accompanied by expressive hints of lindenblossom, ginger and creamed corn. Well-balanced with a lean complexion, this crowd-pleasing wine has a flavorsome, refreshing finish."
