    This time I also tasted a white sparkling wine, the NV Atemporal Brut Nature. The base wine is from 2014, and the way to know it is because the label mentions the disgorgement year, 2017, which can be confused with the harvest date. It's a blend of 90% Chardonnay from 16-year-old vines in their Albaneve vineyard in Campo de los Andes in Vista Flores (Valle de Uco), with 10% Pinot Noir sourced from Tupungato. It was a year with lower alcohol (this is 12.6%) and higher acidity; it was disgorged after a second fermentation in bottle and no less than 18 months in contact with the lees. This is very clean, elegant and precise; it's aromatic and has a nice balance between fruit freshness and flavors from the lees. It has integrated bubbles and very good acidity. The base wine has the style of the Estate Chardonnay, with good acidity, freshness and minerality. This is surprisingly good. Drink date: 2018-2020. Score - 91.
