7 Rows Chardonnay, 2018

Produced by Viñas Zurinaga

With a pale golden hue the tasting experience begins with the aroma of light fruit and a hint of citrus on the nose. The first sip delivers fresh and bright fruit, followed by a soft rounded mouthfeel of creamed oats in the front palate. e wine expresses a clean and crisp minerality, with a balanced acidity that we have come to expect, followed by a long dry nish of subtle fruit. It possesses an excellent structure. Although ready to drink now, this vintage is clearly cellar-worthy and will bene t from additional bottle time. is wine drinks well with or without food.
