Appearance

Nose

This varietal Chardonnay is remarkably complex on the nose. Notes of ripe pineapple and banana, typical of a Mediterranean Chard., combined with aromas of citrus, bitter herbs, withered leaves, pastry, butter, dry fruit and honey.

Palate

Moderately creamy, this white wine from Bodegas Enrique Mendoza has an elegantly dry touch, with hints of citrus, white fruit and butter, underpinned by a salty touch. Long, delicately bitter finish with some remembrances of citrus and a mineral note.

Our personal opinion

The white wine Enrique Mendoza Chardonnay Fermentado en Barrica 2021 pairs well with shrimp, and it is also a great combination with creamy goat cheeses.
