2017 Vina Cobos Bramare Los Arbolitos Vineyard Chardonnay
The Los Arbolitos Chardonnay underwent primary fermentation with native and selected yeasts. Malolactic fermentation took place in French oak barrels (50% new) with maturation in the same barrels on lees for a period of 12 months.
Brilliant pale straw colour with a greenish tinged outskirts and a watery hue. Pronounced ripe peach and fresh apricot aromas intermix with hints of lemon butter, honeyed citrus like notes, toasty clove and spice notes. Rich ripe peach, apricot and honeyed flavours meld into toasty oak with lemon butter, spice and lingering cashew ensuing. The textural feel is creamy but it finishes with good fresh acidity. Long fresh apricot, lemon butter, honeyed cashew and spice aftertaste.
Cellar 4-5 years.
Very tangy and intense with a pie crust, ripe apple and almond character. Medium to full body, bright acidity. Plenty of character in the aftertaste. Vivid and driven chardonnay here. Drink now.
