  • 100% Chardonnay
  • Maipo Valley
  • Third week. March 2019
  • Vineyard Notes:

Established on “river bed soils” of the Maipo river. Very deep and poor soils with a very low natural fertility and low organic matter content. Under these conditions the vigour is almost naturally controlled. Big thermal oscillation during day and night in summer time, permit a slow ripening process of the grapes. Harvest took place during the third week of march.

  • Vinification:
Once the grapes were destemmed and crushed they went through a cold maceration, prior to fermentation at 8º Celsius, for 12 hours. After this they were pressed to begin with the fermentation process at a temperature of 14º – 16º celsius. 90% of the wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts. 10% was fermented in French oak barrels. Once the fermentation process was completed the wine was kept in contact with the lees for 2 months with a weekly battonage. No malolactic fermentation.
  • Tasting Notes:

Nice volume and soft structure with notes of tropical fruits like pineapple and passion fruits well accompa-nied by some touches of honey and vanilla. Fresh and tasty. Creamy texture with a long and pleasant aftertaste.

  • Serving Suggestions:

Enjoy this wine with soft and creamy cheese, fish such as sea bass, oysters and razor clams.
