Chardonnay’s got an image problem. Thanks to the wide availability of oak-aged Chardonnay, most think they’re just butter-bombs. It doesn’t have to be that way! Chard, as its friends and allies call it, can actually be quite crisp and dry in the right conditions.
Apaltagua produces wines from various vineyards in Chile, but this particular one is from Casablanca Valley. It’s a cooler climate, coastal region that’s perfect for crafting the antithesis of those butter-bombs. With its mineral notes and citrus… it’s Sauvignon Blanc with a little more heft to it!
Apaltagua Chardonnay Reserva ($15) No oak in this Chard - crisp, dry and citrusy all the way.
