The grapes for this wine come from two different Colchagua Valley vineyards – The first is the Fundo San Carlos near Cunaco, and the second is in the Peor es Nada zone in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, which lends freshness, greater natural acidity, and minerality to the wine. The blocks average 24 years in age.
Varietal Composition: Chardonnay 94%, Viognier 6%.
Elaboration: The grapes were destemmed and crushed and pressed without maceration. The juice was drained from the press and decanted for 36–48 hours at 10ºC. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at temperatures controlled to 16º–20ºC using native and selected yeasts. Upon completion of fermentation, the wine remained on its lees for two months with weekly battonage (lees stirring) for better integration and to improve volume. The wine was lightly filtered before bottling.
Tasting Notes: Brilliant and light yellow in color. The nose is fresh, fruity, and expressive, with aromas that recall melons, yellow plums, mandarin oranges, and apricots. The palate is very juicy, intense, and well
