It is a classic modern Chardonnay style, with elegant oak use, and delicate integration and balance. On the nose shows a rather shy personality, with crunch red apple and lemon notes and a subtle smoky and white pepper hint. It is creamily textured on the palate and opens up generously with many layers of apple, pear, and spices. Its very bright acidity makes up for a great Chardonnay expression.
Higher and well-distributed rainfall throughout the season was welcomed in 20/21 season after previous years of droughts, yet a hail storm hit hard on our Finca, and our production in volume was reduced significantly. An intensely hot summer was followed by temperatures cooling off slightly just before harvest, allowing the grapes to reach beneficial sugar levels, generous flavour concentration, and a beautifully textured structure. Rains were more intense than average but very well distributed throughout the seasons, providing sufficient water for the vines while keeping moderate yields and excellent health.
It was the year 2002 when a group of friends decided to invest in Argentina. They knew little about wine production, but all were passionate wine lovers and excited about the vision of bringing Argentine wines to the world stage. They bought the land that would become Finca Ambrosia and set about turning their idea into reality. At this time, the Gualtallary district began to attract the interest of wine producers, primarily because of its outstanding soil and climate characteristics. Encouraged by the positive forecasts, the friends bought 3 more plots over the years, from which the current winery emerged. Today, Gualtallary is considered the best terroir for producing premium wines in the province of Mendoza.
