Terrenal Estate Bottled Chardonnay 2012, Spain

image

My Rating 75 Points. 
Price $6.

Light yellow in color with a golden hue.

On the nose, flowers, lemons, grapefruits, citrus, minerals and wet stones.

Medium-bodied with high acidity.

Dry on the palate with lemons, pears, Kiwi, guava, bitter almonds, spices and some yeast.

Short and tart on the finish with limes.

This is my first Spanish Chardonnay. Interesting, but not balanced at all. Too tart for my taste.

The grapes were hand-harvested. From southeastern Spain.

12.5% alcohol by volume.

    1. Shimshon, i had this at a friends home, so i’m not sure when it was purchased, but it could definitely been purchased a long while ago, and the wine was supposed to be had a couple of years ago. Maybe the 2014 is more vibrant.
      BTW this was from Spain.
