Torres Milmanda, 1999

DO Conca de Barbera (Penendes)
Chardonnay, ABV 13.5
5000 ptas (bought at the vinyard) approx $50


Bright and clear golden straw in colour, with a broad waterwhite rim, and medium plus legs.

A rather intense, clean nose, of honey, peach, melon, butter and oak.

A viscous mouth feel, dry, with powerful yet subdued flavours of shortbread, honey, melon, brioch, and toast. Definet lactic fermentation.

A wonderful example of a non-french old world Chardonnay. One of my favourite expressions of this grape. Drink now or within the next year.
