Dádivas Chardonnay 2013

Made from 100% Chardonnay from 2 different clones, and harvested from two parcels of the Dádivas vineyard. The wine is fermented for 15-20 days and then aged for eight months in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

Dádivas Chardonnay has a bright, straw color with shining golden reflections and high viscosity, along with intense, elegant aromas of white flowers, such as daisies and acacia, and tropical notes of pineapples, melons, pears, grapefruit, apples and crisp minerality. It contains a fascinating palate of viscosity and balanced acidity, and a long finish.  

Food Pairing

Dádivas Chardonnay is the perfect match with white meat, parma ham, fish, seafood, green salad, tropical fruit, pasta, risotto, and cheese.
