Alfredo Roca Fincas 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 vibrant pear and apple aromas. Has a touch of richness, but thankfully lacks fat, buttery flavors.

Serve With: Excellent on its own, but can stand up to richly sauced poultry, seafood, or creamy pasta dishes.
