Description

This Chardonnay from Mexico's LA Cetto is a shining example of the versatility of Baja California. Grapes are sourced from their Valle de Guadalupe vineyards with vines aged 18-25 years and are fermented at controlled temperature.

Intense straw yellow on colour with golden highlights, this wine shows citrus and tropical fruit aromas such as pineapple and guava, with underlying vanilla. The textured palate is filled with mango, guava and ripe melon, and a citrus backbone for a crisp, yet lingering finish. Try with white fish, chicken, creamy pastas or creamy cheeses. 

LA Cetto was founded in 1928 by Italian immigrant Angelo Cetto, who sowed the noble European wine tradition in the fertile lands of Baja California. After further generations took the reigns in Valle de Guadalupe, the first LA Cetto varietal line was launched in 1983. The winery now benefits from a range of soils and microclimates across Valle de Guadalupe, Valle Redondo, San Vicente, San Antonio de las Minas and Tecate, with some plots hosting vines that are up to 80 years old.
