Tierra Alta Reserva




Uruguay is an overlooked wine country, although the country geographically has the same basis for wine production as the more well-known South American wine countries, Chile and Argentina.
In recent years, Uruguay has refined and consolidated its wine production as a quality producer of wines with greater and greater international recognition.
This wine is made from Chardonnay, which is the most widely grown green grape in the world. The large distribution gives large geographical differences, which range from light and crunchy wines, to peach yellow and strong of the kind. Chardonnay Tierra Alta Reserva is a full-bodied and powerful white wine.


Uruguay er et overset vinland i dansk henseende, selvom landet geografisk har samme grundlag for vinproduktion, som de mere kendte sydamerikanske vinlande, Chile og Argentina. 

Uruguay har i de senere år forædlet og konsolideret sin vinproduktion, som en kvalitetsproducent af vine med større og større international anerkendelse.

Denne vin er lavet på Chardonnay, som er den mest udbredte grønne drue i verden. Den store udbredelse giver store geografiske forskelle, som svinger lige fra lyse og knastørre vine, til fersken gule og kraftige af slagsen. Chardonnay Tierra Alta Reserva er en fyldig og kraftig hvidvin.

General grape descriptions


Wine drinkers find it flatteringly easy to enjoy, with its broad, exuberant charms, relatively high alcohol and low acidity, and lack of powerful scent. Vine growers find it easy to grow productively and profitably (it can yield well, ripen usefully early, although buds rather too early for frost-free comfort in cool climates). And winemakers revel in the range of different winemaking techniques to which Chardonnay readily submits: not just a wide range of dry white wines with more weight than most, but delicate sparkling wines and even a few extremely successful sweet white wines made with the benefit of 'noble rot'.
