Tasting notes

 Our 2010 Altacima 6.330  Chardonnay has a  bright golden yellow colour.
Complex fruity aromas by way of apricot, pear, pineapple and banana   combined harmonically with touches of sweet spices such as vanilla and a toasty characteristic acquired from the oak ageing.
The palate is immersed in fruity flavours combined with   mineral notes and a pleasant acidity that simply beckons for the tasting to continue.
