Province: MendozaJoffre e Hijas Grand Chardonnay 2009
Grapes: 100% Chardonnay
Pure refinement in a bottle – there’s a restrained floral nose with hints of honeysuckle and orange blossom, then a structured wine that opens up gradually in the manner of an older French chardonnay. Darker notes of orange marmalade and burnt sesame come through beguilingly towards the end. To be savored, perhaps with a roast chicken or a delicate white fish.
