Bressia, Lagrima Canela 2013, Argentina
Bottle Note: This lemon-colored, white blend composed of chardonnay (70%) and semillon (30%) has a slightly aromatic nose of white grape.
On the attack you taste the fruit followed by medium-plus acidity along with slight tartness on the finish.
A blend to try to experience the interaction of chardonnay and semillon in warm-climate Argentina as compared to cooler-climate Bordeaux where this white blend is more common.
This wine was aged for 14 months in new French oak barrels.
