Pulenta Estate VIII Chardonnay
This Pulenta Chardonnay has notes of ripe tropical fruit flavors and is complemented by a fresher, citrus element, whilst the oak gives toasted almond and coconut notes as well as texture and volume. The perfect combination of elegance and richness.
The grapes come from two blocks on the Finca La Zulema vineyard in Agrelo. The grapes are harvested by hand in two different vineyard passes of equal sizes, spaced fifteen days apart. The first harvest gives grapes with good acidity and freshness, whilst the second harvest gives richer and riper fruit.
The first harvest was fermented in stainless steel tanks at 14°C for fifteen days, with one month spent on the fine lees and no malolactic. The second harvest was fermented in new French oak barrels, where the wine also underwent malolactic fermentation and a further nine months’ ageing, before blending and bottling.
Lemon-yellow with bright green hues, aromas mainly tropical fruits typical of a proper fruit maturity, made complex by the chocolate and vanilla notes given by the aging in new French oak.
