Chardonnay
Tasting Notes:
Our Chardonnay has a bright and golden yellow color. Intense smell of banana, pineapple and hints of vanilla. Balanced and unctuous. It has a great persistence and a fresh harmony. Great with fish, seafood and creamy pasta dishes.


Vineyards:
The grapes come from our estate vineyards in Villa Alegre, 285 km south of Santiago in the Maule Valley. The soils are derived from volcanic ash and consist of sandy to sandy-loam earth. The vineyards are flat and receive an excellent exposure to sunlight. The yields are carefully controlled so as to produce concentrated and elegant wines.


Vinification process:
The grapes were harvested by hand early in the morning at the end of March. The 30 % of the must is fermented in barrels and the other in stainless steel with select yeast, at temperatures ranging from 12 to 14C (54-57F) during a twenty-days, period allowing the extraction varietals aromas. Then we stir the lees to extract flavors and aromas from the yeast. Prior to bottling, the wines are stabilized and filtered carefully to keep the integrity.
