Adrianna Chardonnay White Stones 2016
Este Chardonnay proviene de viñedos plantados a 1.450 metros de altitud, lo que proporciona un vino con muy buena acidez y gran calidad frutal debido en gran parte a la climatología de la zona. En boca es redondo y tiene una extraordinaria mineralidad.

My favorite of the Adrianna whites, the 2016 White Stones Chardonnay was cropped from a low-yielding, cool and wet year, very unusual weather in Mendoza. It's sharp, austere, mineral and long. No matter how impressed I was with the 2015 or the two vintages of the White Bones I tasted next to it, this stole the show. It has a combination of mineral notes that transmit a serious sensation with hints of flowers, spices and herbs that show in a very subtle way. The palate is liquid chalk, with sharp and pungent flavors, nicely textured. It's precise, linear, long and sharp, with great length and persistence. It will be fascinating to see how this wine evolves in bottle, because I think we can have a big surprise in ten years from now. 6,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2017.
This is super focused and powerful with precision and energy. It's full yet so tightly-wound and gorgeous. It just races down the palate. Dried apples, pineapple and salt. Drink or hold. Wonderful future.
One of the flagship whites is the 2016 Chardonnay Adrianna Vineyard White Stones, which comes from a single block in the Adrianna Vineyard. It has a vibrant, incredibly juicy, Chablis-like style in its tart citrus, white flowers, white grapefruit, and crushed rock-laced bouquet. With medium body, nicely integrated yet high acidity, and a great finish, it’s not a heavyweight and shines for its precision and purity. It should benefit from a year in bottle and keep for a decade.
