Produced in very limited quantity, Susana Balbo’s 2015 vintage Chardonnay was fermented and aged in medium-toast French oak barrels for 6 months. The result is an elegant and complex expression of one of the world’s finest grape varieties. Subtle citrus and vanilla notes on the nose, lean and delicate on the palate with exceptional balance and length.
The 2015 vintage received rave reviews. 93 pts. James Suckling / 91 pts. Descorchados / 90 pts. Decanter
The winemaker: Susana continues to push the boundaries of Argentine winemaking, and that is what makes her one of the premier winemakers not just in Argentina, but also in the greater world of wine. In 2015, The Drinks Business magazine chooses Susana as “Woman of the year”. In 2018 she also was named one of “The 10 most influential women in the wine world”.
