90 Points James Suckling: Argento Reserva Chardonnay is golden and expresses fresh citrus aromas. Although it is a full-bodied wine in the mouth, it is a clean wine, with fresh flavors of grapefruit and pineapple complemented by mineral notes. The finish is persistent and refreshing, with a rich texture and crisp acidity. Light lemon in color, this elegant Chardonnay exhibits fresh aromas of apricot and peach. Further notes of white stone fruit on the palate are enhanced by soft, round flavors of fig and honey from malolactic fermentation and integrated oak aging. Balanced acidity and subtle minerality lead into a crisp, lingering finish.
The winery is located at Cruz de Piedra, Maipú, in the Central Region of Mendoza. It is a building from the year 1970 which was designed by architect ‘Chicho’ Pitela. The structure is of Mediterranean style with wide galleries, arcades and vitreaux which confer a really warm illumination and grant the place with an environment that reflects the one from where the vineyards are grown. The winery is surrounded byvineyards and olive trees that overlook the mountain range, from which Tupungato hill and the renowned Cordón del Plata must be highlighted. Bodega Argento embraces a constant spirit of improvement by linking technology with passion, art, knowledge and the Argentinian oenological tradition with the clear goal of respecting both sustainability and the environment.
