Lapostolle 2016 Grand Selection Chardonnay, Chile
This aromatic chardonnay is created by pulling grapes from a region that has mild temperatures all year around which lends to a slow ripening process. The winemaking also plays a key role in the flavor profile, 80% of the juice sees stainless steel aging and the remaining 20% is fermented in French oak barrels. The nose has a profile of pineapple, green apple and lemongrass. The palate has refreshing acidity, a slight creamy texture from the little bit of oak with a touch of minerality adding a complex long finish.
