About Pyros 2021 Chardonnay, Mendoza, Valle de Pedernal 'Appellation'

Top 100 Wine Selection Wine Enthusiast!

Pyros Wines is a terroir-driven project created with the aim of positioning the Pedernal Valley at the top of Argentinean viticulture, through its distinctive soils and high altitudes. The diverse terroir and natural beauty were inspirations to Mijndert Pon, the founder of Bodegas Salentein and Bodegas Callia. His vision to showcase the exceptional fruit grown in the Pedernal Valley led to the creation of the region’s first wine brand, Pyros.

Hand harvested grapes are picked in March. Once destemmed, grapes are fermented in a combination of stainless steel (80%) and French oak barrels for 21 days, with both inoculated and native yeasts. Batonnage and 20% malolactic fermentation.

Aged in stainless steel (80%) and barrique (1, 2, 3 and 4th use) for six months, followed by three months bottle ageing.

I tasted my first white from Pyros: the 2021 Appellation Chardonnay. It's a varietal barrel-aged example (only 20% of the volume) with moderate ripeness, 13% alcohol and very good freshness, reflecting a cool year. It has a combination of apples, white flowers and spices and is clean and expressive, with a medium-bodied palate with a chalky texture and supple flavors. 18,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2021.

Coming from San Juan, Argentina's second largest wine-producing region, this white offers delicate notes of white flowers, lime and herbs. A light note of honey adds to its complexity. The mineral-textured palate has weight and shows white peach, lime and chamomile that extend to the lingering finish. Vigorous acidity balances it all out.

91 Points Decanter

From vineyards at 1,400m in San Juan's Pedernal Valley, this well-made cool climate Chardonnay balances elegant, creamy freshness with clean citrus and tropical fruit, all underpinned by brisk acidity, with stony, gunflint hints.
