    Region: Chile, South America

    Varietal: Chardonnay

    Style: Rich & Creamy

    Item no. 92864

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Brilliant golden-yellow color. Intense, elegant and clean nose, where the tropical fruits, pineapple and citrus, predominate on very nice toasty notes coming from a well integrated wood. Delicious, fleshy and nicely-structured wine in the mouth, with a well balanced acidity that keeps it alive. A good alliance of freshness and complexity.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Nicely focused, with a racy core of fig, hazelnut and pear notes that stays pure and elegant as the toasty edge remains in the background. The finish is long and juicy. Very stylish. Drink now through 2008. 8,000 cases imported.

    The 2006 Chardonnay Atalyas Vineyard “Cuvee Alexandre” is light gold-colored with an attractive bouquet of toasty oak, poached pear, and butterscotch. This leads to a creamy-textured wine with tropical flavors and a hint of hazelnuts. The wine has fine depth and length but lacks complexity. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

    This white hits you over the head. If you like heavy oak, go for it. It's better when consumed with food - definitely not a slow sipper on its own.
