Unoaked Chardonnay from high elevation, highlighting the taste of the terroir.
Pale gold yellow with shades of green. The nose opens with hints of white peach, pear and white flowers. A subtle note of butter complete it´s great typicity. Freshness and brightness frame its balance and complexity. Persistent and mineral finish.
Pairs well with soft cheeses and herbed seafood dishes.
The 2015 Locura 1 is an unoaked, high-altitude Chardonnay from Alto Cachapoal that tries to showcase the freshness and minerality of its birthplace through a pleasant and drinkable white with moderate alcohol and a very low pH (3.0). It's sourced from two separate vineyards with different soils, fermented in stainless steel without malolactic and kept in contact with the lees for 12 months. It's a marginally cooler year, which resulted in somehow austere wines (at least this one), in the style of an unoaked Chablis. This is mineral and fresh, with good grip, really pleasant with great freshness.The Wine Advocate April 2017
A bright and fruity chardonnay with hints of straw and stone. Medium to full body, sliced pear and lemon character. And a long and flavorful finish. No malo gives this a linear backbone and brightness. Drink now.James Suckling May 2016
