    Winemaker's Notes:

    This unique white blend is a sensory revelation. We wondered what it would be like to blend grapes from three high-elevation vineyards from across Argentina from three talented growers, and we were happily surprised. This baby is bright, fresh, and crisp with floral aromas and citrusy flavors with plenty of body from the unoaked Chardonnay.

    For food partners, we're still pondering what food this wouldn't go with, but for sure it's a wine to keep in the fridge for all occasions between Easter and Halloween

    Critical Acclaim:

    The unoaked 2009 Cocina Blanco de Blancos is an intriguing blend of 70% Chardonnay, 15% Torrontes, and 15% Sauvignon Blanc. It exhibits an excellent bouquet of mineral, citrus, and lemon meringue leading to a medium-bodied, dry, intensely flavored, ripe wine that would be a fine match for a crab cake.

    The Wine Advocate

    Full golden yellow. Aromas of very ripe stone and tropical fruits, with a strong element of smoky, spicy oak. Supple, sweet and spicy, with just enough liveliness from the sauvignon and torrontes to leaven the chardonnay's butterscotch and caramel notes. Slightly phenolic on the back but this offers good texture for a white wine in this price range.
