Chardonnay 2014
WINE OVERVIEW

A Chardonnay with incredible balance and complexity that can age like fine Burgundy.

Tasting Notes

Bright yellow color. Intense aromas of citric fruit and grilled hazelnut with a mineral touch. On the palate, great varietal fruit intensity is enhanced by excellent acidity. The aftertaste lingers with mineral and fruity notes mixed with hints of French oak. The balance between alcohol and acidity is impressive and gives this wine a freshness, a length, and an aging potential not commonly found in white Chilean wines.

Food Pairing

This wine pairs well with delicate foods such lighter seafood and creamy vegetable soups.

Tech Details

From Felipe's 20-year old original test vineyard in Traiguen (Malleco Valley), these grapes were harvested late in the season due to the cold climate. Yields were less than 2.5 tons per acre. The grapes were pressed as whole clusters and 10% goes through malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged for nine months in French oak.
