Intro to Tapiz Chardonnay –
Tapiz Chardonnay from Mendoza in Argentina has an appealing intense aroma of apples and pineapple with added hints of vanilla and elegant complexity on the palate.
Full tasting note and wine making –
The Tapiz Chardonnay is made from high quality grapes grown in their own vineyards in La Consulta in Tupungato, Uco Valley that are 1.3meters above sea level. The soils here are sandy, alluvial and stony which means they are well drained and the altitude means there is a great daily temperature range ensuring that the fruit ripens well and a little more slowly in the cooler evenings.
Most of the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks and 6% is both fermented and aged in French oak of second and third year use and none of it undergoes malolactic fermentation thus retaining the refreshing natural grape acidity in the wine. It has an intense aroma and flavour of white peaches and pears with delicate vanilla overtones that are well balanced and linger on the palate.
The producer –
Tapiz is a fantastic state of the art winery producing superb wines at great value prices. They are dedicated to sustainable practises and have recently been certified GLOBAL G.A.P (a global partnership for Good Agricultural Practice). They have vineyards in Mendoza and also further afield even as far as Salta in the far north which are blessed by a consistent combination of sun, soil and cooling glaciers providing the base for making quality wines.
Drink with –
It is a wine that can be drink on its own as an aperitif but with its concentrated fresh flavour is a great accompaniment to fish such as mackerel, tuna etc.
