Torres Milmanda Chardonnay 2018

Conca de Barbera, Catalunya (Catalonia Cataluña), SpainFrom deep, silty calcareous clays of the Conca de Barberà, this was fermented in 300L French barrels (50% new) followed by a partial MLF. The wine then aged for 6 months in barrel, followed by a 10 month tightening stint in stainless with periodic bâtonnage. Green fig, pear, lemon thistle and verbena is strung with chalky electricity, and tightened by a crystalline lemon tightness, finishing off with a trail of minerality. Such a striking wine this vintage, drinking well now and with time ahead.Tasted: 11 November 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
