SOL NEGRU Chardonnay

95 MDL

The “oaky, buttery Chardonnay” flavor profile, now an international wine style recognized in wine regions around the world. The aromatic suggestion of butter and cream is a product of malolactic fermentation. In combination with this creaminess, we also can mention the baked apple, pineapple, and some fresh mango. The taste is always smooth, comprehensive, and long-lasting.
