Wine Review: Ecologica - Torrontes/Chardonnay

La Rioja Argentina.
Fair Trade Certified.
Torrontes 60% Chardonnay 40% 2009.
"A refreshing, light golden yellow colour. The delicate floral aromas are nicely enhanced with the body given by the chardonnay. Look out for citrus touches, green apples and tropical fruits including pineapples. Well balanced flavour and fresh. Best served with: Appetizers, fish, shellfish, salads and poultry, or enjoy it simply as an aperitif."
$12.99/bottle
12.5% alcohol


I didn't really enjoy this wine as much. I bought it to just try something new and different. I don't think I'm a big fan of chardonnay, so this may have been why I didn't like it. I think that the fruitiness didn't really balance well with the sourness of the grapes.

Final recommendations: Won't buy again, but would recommend to try if you like chardonnay.
