Product Description

Nuna Estate White Blend is made from 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Chardonnay, 20% Viognier

Imagine a mythical blend of Napa Chardonnay and White burgundy.

Yeasty, dusty aromas of mango, lychee and other tropical fruits set up a plump, round palate with vanilla, tropical fruit and caramel flavors. The yeasty, oaky theme carries onto the finish, which is loaded with banana and melon. This is 80% Chardonnay and 20% Viognier.

Nuna is produced in a state-of-the-art winery, Chakana, built with the purpose of achieving outstanding quality.

Chakana winery was founded by Juan Pelizzatti on May 2nd, 2002. Juan was driven to enter the wine industry first and foremost by his passion for wine, and also by the desire to invest his time and money on a product of agriculture. Although Juan did not know it at the time, the company was founded on the same day the Chakana was celebrated on the Andes highlands: on that same day, the Southern Cross (the Chakana for the Inca people) becomes vertical in the night Andean sky.
Juan's mission is to create an integral experience to introduce world consumers to the taste and culture of the Andes. His vision is to become one of the top 20 exporters of wine from Argentina, by consistently offering outstanding value for money.

Wine is currently produced in four different levels at Chakana, by winemaker Gabriel Bloise:
          Entry Level: Maipe
          Reserve Level: Maipe Reserve, Cueva de las Manos, Nuna
          Estate Selection
          Ayni


The winemaking process is focused on treating the grapes with great care and with strict control of every step of the production.
Wines are designed under the responsibility of the renowned international wine consultant Alberto Antonini.
The winery is located on a 150 ha. estate, 34 km South of the city of Mendoza, in Agrelo, Lujan de Cuyo.
The grapes grown are 35 year-old Malbec, Bonarda and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Deep and textured soils facilitate plant development and confer great body and structure to the wines.
The year-long sunny and dry conditions allow almost organic viticulture practices. The outstanding feature includes a great daily thermal amplitude, with mild days and cold nights, permitting a particular richness of polifenols that improves the wines flavors and color.
A drip irrigation system has been set up to achieve a precise control of the vegetative cycle and a rational use of water. Waters are processed and used in the vineyards.

    Johann Michel Saint-Peray Blanc 2016

    Made from 50% Marsanne and 50% Roussanne

    Johann Michel Saint Peray Blanc has a shining golden yellow color. 

    The wine is aromatic with white flowers such as acacia and honeysuckle. In the mouth, you will find some lanolin flavors as well as apricot and yellow ripe peach.
    The finish is long, delicate and balanced.
    It is waxy and very White Burgundy like.

    Average age of the vines is 15 years old. 

    Johann Michel owns 0.5 hectare (1.24 acre) of Saint Peray.

     

    All planted on Granitic soil, with some schist vein. Aromatic with white flowers such as acacia and honeysuckle. In the mouth, you will find some lanolin flavors as well as apricot and yellow ripe peach. The finish is long, delicate and balanced.
    It is waxy and very White Burgundy like.
     
    Waxy and Burgundy like being the most important part of tasting wines in Saint-Peray. Most whites are thin and lacking interest. 
     
    Great with fresh oysters, Grilled fish, Bresse Chicken cooked in a creamy sauce with morels ...
