Our Wine

Finca La Anita are timeless wines that are the spirit and soul of our terroir. Extraordinary wines to drink and age.

This Chardonnay was produced from our own grapes carefully selected our Finca in Alto Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza.


Vintage Overview

A classic vintage in Mendoza; dry, fresh and sunny with moderate yields throughout the region from the lowest to the highest areas. This, together with lower rainfall than usual, resulted in fruit with optimal balance, good levels of natural acidity, lovely aromatic expression and soft tannins.


Winemaking

Fermented in stainless steel tanks for 20 days at controlled temperatures at around 12 °C.

Ageing

A short period in new French oak followed by four months in second and third use barrels.

Tasting Note

Light yellow with golden hues. On the nose, pear and pineapple with citrus notes and in touch of biscuity oak. The palate is sweet and unctuous carried by fresh acidity.
