2182621825SpainAir freshner and lychee are the most identifiable aromas. The palate feels fresh and light, which, given the wine's fleshy, tropical flavors, is a compliment. An oily, bitter finish is similar to marginal Torrontés from Argentina.Viura-Chardonnay8114Northern SpainNavarraMichael Schachner@wineschachOchoa 2012 Viura-Chardonnay White (Navarra)White BlendOchoa
