Las Estelas Chardonnay is made by the fabulous Estela Perinetti at her family estate, Finca Mangato. The wine has beautiful notes of citrus, apple and stone fruit along with subtle vanilla and toffee oak notes. It is a luxurious and textured wine which retains mineral freshness behind the opulent yet elegant fruit. The grapes come from a small vineyard called Finca Valmore which is relatively cool due to its position at 1380 meters above sea level.

Finca Mangato is a vineyard that was originally planted with Semillon in the early 1940’s by Dr. Hector Perinetti, the son of an Italian immigrant. The Semillon was grubbed up by Estela, Hectors granddaughter in the 1990’s and planted with the red varieties of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah. After planting the vineyard, Estela went on to established herself as one of Argentina’s greatest wine makers through her work with Bodegas Catena Zapata and Bodegas CARO. Finca Mangato has always been her baby and she has now returned to the vineyard full time and the Las Estelas wines are the result of her foresight to replant them thirty years ago and her extensive winemaking knowledge.
