This bright, fresh Chardonnay gets a touch of softness from Sémillon, a white variety that’s usually made into dessert wines.
What You Need To Know
This Argentine Chardonnay comes from Mendoza, the region that produces two-thirds of the country’s wine. Across its varied terrain—which ranges from dusty plains to snowcapped Andes peaks—the best wines come from vineyards high up in the Andean foothills, where cool nights preserve grapes’ crisp acidity. Valentín Bianchi, a large, family-owned winery founded in 1928, sources this Chardonnay from estate vines that grow at an elevation of 2,500 feet, in one of the coolest parts of Mendoza’s San Rafael subregion. Those fresh temperatures—and the skill of longtime winemaker Francisco Martinez—show in the wine’s bright, balanced flavors.
