Ventisquero - "Tara" Atacama Chardonnay 2020 (750ml)


| /

This artisan wine is a reflection of the Atacama Desert's distinct environment, offering a blend of fruity and mineral flavors with a solid composition, aged 15 months in stainless steel tanks. It's characterized by a subtle sediment, enhancing its unique qualities.

The wine is lively and mineral-forward, with a firm structure that brings about a lasting finish. The taste reveals the soil's salinity and chalkiness. Aromatically, it blends mineral tones with subtle green cherimoya, apricot, and white stone fruit, accented with floral notes. This Chardonnay, distinct from traditional styles, is shaped by its special terroir. Influences from the nearby Pacific Ocean, including morning fog known as "Camanchaca" and cooling winds, contribute to this desert region's surprisingly cool climate. It pairs exceptionally well with dishes like oysters, sea urchins, rich fish, and white meats.
