A Chardonnay with incredible balance and complexity that can age like fine Burgundy.
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.
This wine pairs well with delicate foods such lighter seafood and creamy vegetable soups.
Year in and year out since its first release in 2000, Sol de Sol is always among the finest Chardonnays in South America. Sourced from clay and volcanic ash soils in Malleco, it's elegantly wooded with just 10% new barrels, some cream from 60% malolactic and a taut, saline finish. 2019-25Tim Atkin April 2019
The wine is fermented and aged in oak barrels for only eight months with lees that are stirred and never racked. It's from a region where the sun is quite strong, and the wind is even stronger. The wind is very good to keep the grapes healthy, but it keeps the yields very low as it creates issues with the flowering and fruit setting; but it helps to get good quality. This should age nicely.Wine Advocate April 2017
