Fine, aromatic dry white wine with ripe tropical fruit and mild oak tones in the fragrance. The taste is soft, fragrant and round and has a full, lingering aromatic aftertaste.
The best bodegas in the wine region around Mendoza are working at a high tempo to give their wines more 'terroir expression'. A good example of this is Chakana. With the help of external experts such as the Chilean terroir specialist Pedro Parra and the Italian Alberto Antonini, organic cultivation with low yields has started. When new vineyards are planted, new locations are sought. Here, the choice of grapes is much more than previously determined by the microclimate and the soil conditions of the plots. It is a complex search for an optimal interaction between the right grape and the terroir. The vineyard in question is at a height of 1,100 meters and is completely organic and the grapes are picked by hand. The maturation takes place in oak casks and the ovoid tanks of cement, which have become rapidly popular with innovative winemakers. The efforts of Chakana lead to more finesse in the wines. A good example is this chardonnay with 3% viognier addition from vineyards in Altamira. It is a beautiful white wine that is rewarded by the famous English-speaking wine writers James Suckling and Tim Atkin with a score of 90 points.
