Light lemon yellow in color with delicious aromas of pear and hazelnut with refreshing mineral notes. Deeply concentrated and elegant on the palate, with silky texture, juicy acidity, and layer upon layer of ripe, opulent fig and pear flavors framed by a mineral edge leading to a long and vibrant finish.
Denomination of Origin
Ucúquer Vineyard, D.O. Litueche, Colchagua Valley, banks of the Rapel River.
Constant breezes cool this vineyard, located 170 m above sea level on the southern bank of the Rapel River, near a ravine close to the mouth of the river. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean—just 15 km away—results in tremendous maritime influence. The Chardonnay vines are 50% clone 95 and 50% clones 72; both are vertically positioned.
Semi-arid coastal. Influenced by the Rapel River and the Pacific Ocean.
12 months in French oak barrels, and concrete egg.
Granitic with a clay-loam texture. Poor in organic matter with good drainage.
"At the moment of creating a wine, I always expect it to express all its special features, all the essence of its grapes together with the character of the soil where it belongs. A unique combination that can be appreciated in its color, bouquet and flavors".Read more
