The Mascota Vineyards are located in Argentina’s Mendoza Province, at the foot of the Andes Mountains. This is known as the “Primera Zona” and is generally regarded as the country’s top wine-producing region.
The La Mascota Chardonnay 2013 is a gorgeous golden color, with a bright floral aroma. It’s light-to-medium-bodied and somewhat creamy in the mouth, with just a touch of minerals and medium acidity.
The flavor is slightly sweet, very pleasant, with apple and honey. It dries up enough on the mildly tart finish to be crisp and refreshing.
This wine would go well with the usual Chardonnay suspects, including chicken, seafood, and light pasta dishes.
