Luigi Bosca Finca Los Nobles Chardonnay 2018

Las Compuertas, Vistalba District, Luján de Cuyo, Northern Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaFinca Los Nobles comes out of Las Compuertas in Luján de Cuyo at 1050 metres above sea level, where the vines are an astounding 90-years-old. Half of this vibrant chardonnay is aged in new oak, and the rest in older barrels for eight months. The nose is super bright with fresh tropical pineapple and mango, honey, and vanilla contributed by delicate ageing in casks. Rich, round, mouthfilling but with just enough acidity to keep it all fresh and linear. Impressive and a statement. Perfect with Chinese seafood dishes or lobster.
