Côtes d’Avanos Chardonnay 2020 is produced from Chardonnay grapes grown in Cappadocia Côtes d’Avanos Vineyard. The vineyard is 950 m above the sea level where the soil is composed of calcer and tufa formed by the breakup of volcanic rocks. The high temperature difference between day and night encourages good maturity, good acidity and the aromatic structure. Grown at a low yield (30 hl/ ha) and harvested by hand at optimum maturity, Chardonnay grapes are processed with a gravity system (transfer of grapes by gravity, without any pumping equipment, thus causing no bruises). Being fermented in 225 and 500 lt French oak barrels and with 7 months of aging on the lees (“élevage sur lies”), Côtes d’Avanos Chardonnay 2020 significantly reflects its terroir.

This premium wine perfectly matches with saused or steamed fish, shellfish, pasta with white sauce and chicken. It is best when served at 8-9 ºC.
