The 2019 Alma Gemela White Field Blend, Onofri offers striking aromas of floral and citrus notes layered with hints of white fruit and subtle vanilla. Medium-bodied and texturally complex with a fresh, elegant finish. Truly delicious and a great example of a modern Argentine blend.
Mariana Onofri, Sommelier & Winemaker, and Adán Giangiulio, Viticulturist, are from Lavalle, one of the oldest wine growing regions in the north of Mendoza. In 2014 they started Onofri Wines, a boutique winery project that focuses on sustainable farming and minimal intervention winemaking. Their goal is to produce wines which are the result of micro-vinifications: made in an artisanal way, rescuing old vines, historical regions and grape varieties, as well as innovating with grapes that display a great adaptation in Mendoza.
It is made up of % Marsanne, 40% Roussanne and 20% Chardonnay, co-fermented in stainless steel at low temperatures with native yeasts. Partial malolactic fermentation allows the wine to retain a degree of freshness and not become too ‘flabby’. Ageing is for 10 months in French oak barrels, 20% of which are new with the remainder 3rd and 4th use.

nv grande reserve, champagne gosset, ay
This cuvée has a bright and golden colour. The nose is dominated by the freshness and the fruit. The Chardonnay brings finesse sustained by notes of yellow fruits such as peach and Mirabelle plum. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and generous. The Pinot Noir of Ay gives its structure. Hawthorn and white flowers merge naturally. Acidity is expressed by citrus fruits.
