It is with great pleasure that we introduce a new wine from Argentina's legendary Gualtallary region. The Marchiori and Barraud Chardonnay provides unique expressions of its vineyard's terroir while classically representing traditional winemaking styles. Known for its freshness and balance, this subregion of the Uco Valley is producing some of the most intriguing wines in Argentina.
Both Andrea Marchiori and Luis Barraud come from families with long winemaking traditions in Argentina. They met each other while studying winemaking in Mendoza. Together they pursued advanced studies at UC Davis and worked in California before returning to Argentina.
Their grapes are organically grown and are hand-harvested. In the winery, spontaneous fermentation takes place with native yeasts and no winemaking additives are used. Finally, the wines are very lightly fined or filtered and the final sulfite levels are 50mg/L.
