Valentin Bianchi Chardonnay Finca Los Primos 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The Bianchi family winery has 350 hectares of winery. It was founded in 1928 by Italian immigrant Valentin Bianchi and is now run by the third generation, headed by Enzo Bianchi. Until recently a sleeping giant dependent largely on the domestic market, they have undergone an extensive modernisation in the past few years. The grapes for this single vineyard wine are grown on the Doña Elsa Estate, situated in Ram Caída, San Rafael, Mendoza at 750 metres above sea level. Rama Caída is among the coolest areas of San Rafael, with sandy calcareous soils of alluvial origin. Bright, medium intense honeyed aromas with notes of lemon, peach, and tropical fruit make this wine immediately attractive. A soft entry and a refreshing crispness make this wine perfect as an aperitif or accompaniment to lighter dishes.
