Reviews and Ratings

Pam Hatton rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Lovely restrained nose of apple, caramel with restrained use of oak. Burgundian in style and very good friendly with a balanced seam of acidity. Long finish. Excellent value.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Lots of jonagold apple, citrus, herbs, and a hit of minerality. This is your Sunday roast chicken dinner. Pretty insane for the price. 91 Points.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Fantastic value in this cool climate Argentinian Chardonnay. Pale straw with a green hue. Medium bodied, mouthwatering acidity. Ripe apple, savoury, slight citrus note. Accessible price point with great value. Pairs well with roast chicken dinner. Tasted 2017 vintage in Sept 2018. 90 points
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A delightfully delicate Chardonnay from a solid Argentinian producer, Luigi Bosca.
Apple driven aromatics play on the nose with glistening citrus and freshly picked green pears. There's also a lingering spice - bringing to mind saffron and sprig of jasmine. On the tongue, the flavours meld together intrinsically with grapefruit, starfruit, nectarine skins, stony minerals and white pepper that lingers on the tongue carrying into the (M+) finish. Acidity is spirited and refreshing. Dry, well balanced and well suited for many foods. Try this with grilled octopus or veggie shish kebabs. 90 points - tasted September 2018
Greg Hughes rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Luigi Bosca' partial malolactic Chard has a lot of sunny fruit to offer.
Bright yellow, it's got a lot of citrus, apple, brioche to the aromas.
The flavours are varietally perfect Chard. Not all of it saw barrel amd most of the wine saw alcoholic fermentation in steel.
Pair this with some chicken and perhaps some roasted veggies. This one would pair with a vast array of stuff. A common find on winelists in North America.
Simon Chen rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

88 pts for the wine and 95 pts for the surprise. You would not guess this is a chardonnay from Mendoza at a blind tasting. Green apple acidity and medium body that give the pleasant experience to the wine (and the price)
Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Pale straw in colour with aromas of green apple, lemon and toasted oak. It is medium bodied with well balanced acidity. It has flavours of lemon, green apple with some minerality. This will pair well with roasted turkey or chicken. Tasted on September 16, 2018.
Luigi Bosca 2017 is a great value dry, full-bodied Chardonnay with fresh green apple and lemon flavours with well-integrated toasty oak on the palate. Pair with roast chicken or turkey. - Community Wine Reviews
