Chardonnay from Argentina
Are you ready for the wine value of the year? We have it. It's a Chardonnay that hails from the heart of Argentine wine country—the renowned region of Mendoza, in the foothills of the eastern Andes. The high altitude vineyards experience warm sunshine and cool nights, ideal growing conditions for Chardonnay.
Bodega Elena de Mendoza Chardonnay comes to us from a terrific, well-regarded Argentine winery who found themselves in a situation of excess supply. In other words, they had a large amount of this wine to sell, and we found ourselves in a position to take it all, take it fast, and pay in cash. And so this very good wine, filled with ripe pear, apple, and melon flavors, with maple and spice notes, became available to us. We really liked the wine, so we negotiated hard and now we're selling Bodega Elena de Mendoza Chardonnay for the unbelievable value of $2.99* a bottle! That's not a typo! This is a big win for Chardonnay lovers. Remember that this wine is only available in limited quantities. When it' gone, it's really gone, so get it while you still can. Only at your neighborhood Trader Joe's.
