La Chamiza Sparkling White Wine Argentina

A Twtitter shout-out from KRacen asked for 'something to drink by the side of the pool'. My response? "Something sparkling and frivolous'. Hot weather, an inviting pool of crystal clear cooling water and, by the side, a bottle of sparkling wine. Not that I have a pool full of cooling water, mind you, but I did receive a bottle of an Argentine bubbly as a birthday present from those terribly nice people at World Wine Agencies of Bath.

My birthday actually fell on the day of a rather posh Polo Match, which I had been invited too by the agency. Sadly I was in Berlin, so couldn't go. Polo and Argentina have a bit of a thing together; the Chamiza winery with its wines bedecked with mallet wielding horseman is a sponsor, I believe, of the sport. Knowing next to absolutely zilch of polo I was more than a little miffed that I couldn't attend. Still, the bottle was a superb present.



Champagne/Sparkling Wine Review/Tasting NoteWine Tasting Note: La Chamiza Extra Brut Sparkling, NV, Mendoza, Argentina.
[More: Adegga / Snooth]
A blend of Chardonnay (70%) and Chenin Blanc (30%) from the Tupungato and Maipu areas of Mendoza; it 'could' be described as frivolous. It is certainly fun; anything with bubbles can be described so but this, with a great depth of yeasty, developed, peachy, citrus flavours could also be seen as something a little more serious. Alcohol 13%.
Scribblings Rating - 88/100 [3.5 out of 5]
