The wine

Lucía Vaieretti, oenologist at Alamos (one of the wineries belonging to the Catena Zapata group), grew up in Mendoza where her family have worked with vines for over forty years. Since she was a young girl, she has felt a strong bond to the desert vineyards found there and knows this is a special place for winemaking. With the goal of making the most of the vines she had helped care for as a youngster, she decided to study winegrowing and oenology and move into the world of wine production. Each one of her wines is a wonderful expression of her passion for the Mendoza landscape.

Created from grapes growing at an altitude of 1,200 metres, Alamos Chardonnay has a truly exceptional character just as Lucia herself explains. The high temperatures and intense sunlight during the daytime contrast with the cool nights to allow the fruit to ripen perfectly. The temperature difference preserves the quality of the fruit and adds tension to the wine, finding a wonderful balance between acidity and sweetness as only nature can. Alamos Chardonnay displays mature and complex aromas and a rich palate, with tropical hints refreshed by citrus fruit. An extremely versatile wine for any table.

A partial malolactic fermentation and subtle ageing process in oak for 6 to 9 months adds complexity and body. The result is a fresh and resinous wine, dominated by fruity and floral aromas; dry, balanced and rounded on the palate. Aromas of apple and pineapple combine with orange blossom and vanilla to offer an inimitable fragrance. Its time spent in wood adds toasted hints, caramel and spices such as cloves and cinnamon. A citrus finish allows the aromas to linger for minutes after every sip, ensuring you take away a wonderful memory from every new bottle.

Bodega Alamos

Bodega Alamos

Bodega Alamos belongs to the Catena Zapata group of wineries and its wines provide an initial link for us to get to know not only this family's mastery but also the purity of wines born at the foot of the Andes. Its vineyards are located at altitudes of between 3,000 and 5,000 metres, a privileged position for enjoying very cool nights and receiving the sun's warmth during the day, the perfect pair for attaining acidity and perfect ripeness which both become so evident in...
