Alfredo Roca Chenin-Chardonnay

White

Argentina

Mendoza

Description

The Roca family has been producing wine in Mendoza for 4 generations, and currently farms nearly 260 acres in San Rafael, the southernmost province of Mendoza. At altitudes of 2,300 to 2,600 feet above sea level, Roca’s vineyards produce distinct, cool-climate wines of singular quality.

Tasting Notes: Offers peach aromas typical of the Chenin varietal, with the richness of the Chardonnay matched by a well balanced acidity on the palate.

Serve With: Excellent with hearty salads and seafood, it has the intensity and body to stand up to bold flavors and rich sauces.
