2021 Black Cabra Chardonnay
100% hand harvested, sustainably farmed Chardonnay from the estate “El Jarillel” Vineyard in Alto Agrelo, Mendoza (one of the best subzones of Mendoza). This vineyard is at 3500’ elevation! A protective method (absence of oxygen) is used during the process of vinication. Slow alcoholic fermentation takes place at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks. No malolactic fermentation. No oak ageing.
Aromas and flavors of crystalline peaches, subtle touches of tropical fruits and apples. In the mouth it is fresh with a long finish and just the slightest hint of creaminess in the texture. No butter bomb here- just pure Chardonnay fruit!
About Black Cabra
The Black Cabra (goat) is a common sight in the Argentine Andes where the winery and vineyards are located. One cabra in particular became friends with one of the winery workers. Every day this Black Cabra would follow along to the winery and look through the winery window as they worked. They named their value wines in that goat’s honor.
The wines, like the Black Cabra (goat), come from the Argentine Andes. These wines are produced from the estate vineyards and crafted in the state-of-the-art winery, Bodega Zolo, by winemaker Fabian Valenzuela and vineyard manager Carlos Correas. The President and Owner is Patricia Ortiz. The wines are 100% sustainably farmed and everything is estate grown.
