Tasting Notes

Peach

Peach

Pear

Vanilla

Vanilla

Beautiful pale gold color with enticing aromas of lemon crème, baking spices and a minerality in its long finish. The aromas carry through to the palate, and are joined by hints of white peach flavors, spiced baked pear, and a stony/mineral flavor that creates a stylish wine which appears part New and part Old World. This wine will age well for years in a cellar.

About This Wine

  • PAIRING

    Pairs well with most fish, crab, chicken and even many pork dishes. Particularly recommended with dishes using sautéed wild mushrooms or butter sauces.
  • WINEMAKER

    On a mission to create exceptional old vine wines in Argentina, Luca producer Laura Catena convinced growers who previously used their old vines for bulk production to cut back on scale and focus on quality at all costs. From this, Luca wines were born.
  • POINTS

    91 POINTS! James Suckling, 2016 vintage

    "A juicy and fruity white with dried apple and honey character as well as some flan. Full and flavorful."

    93 POINTS! James Suckling, 2015 vintage

    "This is really fresh and refined with stones and subtle fruit character. Medium body and a fine texture. Bright and intense. Layered. Vibrant."

    93 POINTS! Robert Parkers Wine advocate, 2015 vintage

    "They separate a small plot from the Adrianna vineyard in Gualtallary and produce what they call the 2015 G Lot Chardonnay, a barrel-fermented white with a very Burgundian profile. it has great balance between fruit and spice and a fine, elegant palate where the minerality is pretty obvious. This should age very nicely in bottle."
