The Tilia Chardonnay shows a straw-yellow colour with light shades of green. The nose presents ripe tropical fruit aromas with pear, peach, pineapple and floral notes. The mouth feel is full and rich, with concentrated pear and tropical fruit flavours with layers of vanilla and sweet spice from light oak aging. The finish is clean and fresh with bright, crisp acidity.
The Tilia wines are made with a combination of fruit sourced from the traditional eastern sub-region of Mendoza, and the area’s dynamic southern region.
Tilia is the Latin name for Linden, is a traditional tree throughout the wine country of Mendoza. The Tilia wines are made at the Bodegas Esmeralda winery in eastern Mendoza by Alejandro Viggiani, the winemaker and viticulturalist in charge of all Catena family vineyards in eastern Mendoza.
This Chardonnay would pair well with most chicken dishes, pasta dishes with cream sauces, and many seafood recipes.
