Wine Advocate2016 was not an easy harvest, but resulted in some exceptional wines, and the 2016 Alamos Chardonnay could very well be the best vintage of this popular wine. From 2015, it is only produced with grapes from the Valle de Uco fermented in stainless-steel. Twenty-percent of the volume goes through malolactic and is fermented with inner staves. The nose has abundant balsamic notes, a mixture of flowers, and yellow and white fruit. The palate is dry and balanced, with an austere, mineral feeling to it, incredible at this price level. Some 450,000 bottles were produced.
