2019 Familia Schroeder Alpataco Chardonnay
Patagonia is fast becoming a real area of boutique wine producers, Familla Schroeder make some awesome cool climate elegant wines.
Located at 39’ Latitude South in San Patricio del Chanar near Neuquen the Schroeder vineyards are planted on gravelly soils and combined with warm days and cool nights provide near perfect conditions for grape cultivation.
This is an oaked Chardonnay with pronounced citrus aromas that also come through on the palate along with notes of tropical and stone fruits and a flinty streak of minerality. Well integrated oak gives elegant vanilla and adds body and is balanced perfectly by a refreshing, citric acidity.
