Cousino Macul Antiguas Reservas Chardonnay 2011
Chardonnay from Chile, South America
With clear bright Golden color, this wine has an intense and delicate bouquet, the dominant fruits are pineapple and melon with soft touches of vanilla. The elegant oak combines to perfection the fruit with the acidity. To the palate, it is fresh, friendly and very elegant.
Very good for tuna and salmon tartars, for smoked salmon, sashimis, pasta with shellfish and cream and in general for grilled fatty fish such as albacore and tuna.
Light yellow. Oak-spiced pear and melon aromas are complicated by a gentle smoky quality and a hint of anise. Orchard fruit and honeydew flavors coat the palate, with dusty minerals and a hint of bitter herbs providing lift. Easygoing and a touch dry, finishing with lingering spiciness.
