Fuzion Organic Chardonnay Torrontes 2018

Many wineries are now touting their organic status or making wine with organic grapes, but what is the difference? The main difference is that organic wines are made without the use of chemical herbicides, fungicides or fertilizers, allowing just the climate, soil and winery team to help the vine grow. Think of it as the difference between trying to keep a winter cold away by taking supplements all winter versus eating right and getting enough sleep. Both methods may keep you healthy, but one is much more natural. Now, if you want to try to taste the difference, you’ll have to buy a bottle of Fuzion Organic Chardonnay Torrontes and find out for yourself!

Tasting Notes: A refreshing blend, Fuzion Organic Chardonnay Torrontes gives aromas of ripe fruit and fresh flowers while maintaining a dry profile and flavours of lemon, pear, green apple and honeysuckle.

Enjoy With: Seafood dishes like baked fish with lemon or seafood pasta, chicken picatta, or goat cheese salads. It’s also a great wine for appetizers!

Style: A dry, crisp medium-bodied white wine.

Terroir/Region: Argentina lies on the Eastern side of the Andes Mountains in South America and the influence of the mountains is what helps create the near-ideal growing conditions in Mendoza, the region Fuzion hails from. With vineyards at a very high altitude, the intensity of the sun is balanced by the cool mountain air, creating a perfect combination for making ripe and refreshing whites like Fuzion Chardonnay Torrontes.

Producer: The team at Fuzion focuses on making wines which overdeliver on their price. Through alliances with local growers, they have found great fruit from all over Mendoza, tapping into the diverse flavours created by different soils and microclimates throughout the region. From there the winemaking team closely monitors production to make Fuzion’s flavours as consistent as possible from year to year, with great success looking at its track record!

Availability: Fuzion Organic Chardonnay Torrontes 2018 is available year-round in the Argentina section of your local LCBO. Grab a bottle to see if you can taste the difference being Organic makes!
