Vinedo De Los Vientos
The property has been in the Fallabrino family since 1947; winemaker Pablo Fallabrino produces quality-driven wines in small quantities utilising a modern winery but at the same time continues to explore forgotten, old or less-known winemaking techniques. ‘Viñedo de los Vientos’ translates into "Vineyard of the Winds" and is located where the river Plate estuary and the Atlantic Ocean meet, providing clean cool ocean breezes and an ideal climate for the maturation of fine wine grapes.
Tart passion fruit, pineapple skins and floral notes abound on the nose; there are some hints of citrus on the palate which is unctuous but offers a savouring acidity and impeccable balance.
Serve with a spicy chicken curry.
The chardonnay is picked unripe (like champagne base wine) to give a sharp acidity, then fully ripened Gewurztraminer and finally late harvest ‘raisin-like’ Moscato is added. The wine is then fermented in the tank for 25 days at 15°C.
