I am wrapping up my journey through Santa Julia’s wines with their 2010 Organica Chardonnay. I have eaten almost entirely organic for the last 8 years but I often have a hard time finding great organic wines…especially at reasonable prices. Santa Julia’s wines have all really impressed me thus far so I was hoping that the Chardonnay would be the perfect finish to my tasting adventure.
About the Wine- From the Winery
Santa Julia Organica Chardonnay 2010 is 100% Chardonnay from the Mendoza region of Argentina. The wine is made from organically grown grapes and is aged in stainless steel tanks. It has 12.5% alcohol and retails for $11. You can find more information at www.winesellersltd.com
Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine
The Organica Chardonnay pours a pale yellow in the glass. The fragrant, fruity nose has notes of pineapple and pear with a hint of vanilla. The wine is refreshing with tastes of tropical fruit, crisp green apples, and banana. The mid-palate is smooth and the fruit flavors carry through to a dry, tangy finish. I am pleased once again with Santa Julia’s wine. This is a great organic Chardonnay and a perfect wine for your end of summer festivities. Cheers!
My Wine Rating- B
Food Pairing Suggestions- This wine pairs well with scallops, braised pork, or shrimp scampi
