The 2021 Vino de Viñedo Los Parientes Chardonnay reflects the cooler year with even lower alcohol, 13%, and higher acidity (8.25 grams of tartaric acid per liter of wine). It was harvested the second half of April, which is very late for the region, as it's usually harvested in early April, which meant a slow and thorough ripening of the grapes. The difference with 2018 is that the end of the season was dry and the grapes were healthy and got a better development of aromas and flavors. There are no differences in the work in the winery: pressing of the full clusters, native fermentation in French barriques and 10 months of élevage. Pristine, fresh, chiseled and elegant, with purity and harmony, austere and dry, there's no room for sweetness here (or anywhere at this address!). It has integrated oak and is vibrant and salty. A bargain for the quality.

The 2020 Chardonnay Selección de Parcelas Los Primos was 38% aged in new oak. Slightly murky greenish yellow in the glass. The intriguingly attractive aromas feature gentle apple, hints of honey and a touch of damson, followed by a nutty layer of hazelnut. Exuberant without being overly rich, it fills the palate but is tempered by a chalky outline that avoids salinity. Long-lasting, and the bold aftertaste includes both hazelnut and fruity flavors.
