Grape varieties

Chardonnay

Region

Mendoza is the largest and most important of Argentina’s wine regions. Situated in the west of the country at the foot of the Andes, it has a hot and dry continental climate with cold nights. There is a little rain in the summer months but irrigation is necessary. Fortunately, water is plentiful, with snow melt supplying the rivers flowing from the mountains. Frost is rare so the main risk to vines is from La Piedra, hail that comes in early summer.

Style

The Chardonnay grape is the world’s most popular grape variety and more often than not will have seen oak, usually through a period of maturation in oak barrels before being bottled and released. The oak imparts rich, creamy, vanilla flavours into the wine to produce big, full-bodied whites. Australia put Chardonnay on the map as an everyday wine but the grape originates from Burgundy in France. Here, in Chablis for example, the wines are very different in style with more mineral flavours, less oak. Chardonnay is often blended with the Semillon grape
