Displaying all the best characteristics of the Chardonnay grape, golden yellow with aromas of toasted almonds and pineapple, this wine is rounded and fruity on the palate, with a good, crisp acidity to balance it, and a wonderful long, dry finish.
Chile has a long, rich history in winemaking and Luis Felipe Edwards is certainly one of its major modern contributors to that history. Santa Luz wines are of great quality, well produced and represent excellent value for money. That is certainly the case with the Santa Luz Alba Chardonnay which is one of the most outstanding in the range.
From Chablis to Montrachet, Chardonnay has graced the tables of all wine-lovers at some time or another. Sadly it is now all too often overlooked as the use of (too much) oak in some New World Chardonnays has put many off. Santa Luz Chardonnay should restore your faith in this fabulous grape variety.
This is one of those wines which goes well with a number of different dishes, including Thai and Chinese food, fish and simple pasta dishes with a light sauce. Serve chilled, though ten minutes at room temperature will help it deliver its best.
