Bodega Chacra, Mainque Chardonnay, 2018


A joint effort from Chacra & Roulot! They farm organically and biodynamically, and you can taste that they harvested perfect grapes: the wine has a core of gorgeous fruit, set off by the region’s natural mineral and saline notes. It’s only 12% alcohol, and with the high tones and mineral notes has terroir-focused intensity at the very same time as a generous, round feel (the wine goes through malo). It is as refined as you would expect a Roulot Chardonnay to be and as exciting as you’d expect a new wine from such a terroir to be.
