Caminada is a Mendoza, Argentina-based winery which sources fruit from the mountains above the Uco Valley. The wine (along with its Malbec) is simple and uncomplex. There’s citrus and lemon on the nose, pairing well with a decent, fruity body. No real finish to speak of, Caminada ends short and simple. Wood aging is limited, and its impact here is light, which is good news for those who aren’t fans of overblown Chardonnay. All told, it’s a pretty easygoing Chardonnay for the price. The trippy label, though, gave me nightmares.
