Gran Reserva Serie Riberas Chardonnay 2018

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.

General description

Variety / Style

  • Chardonnay

Denomination of Origin (D.O.)

Vineyard

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.

Soil

Granitic with a clay-loam texture. Poor in organic matter with good drainage.

Climate

Semi-arid coastal. Influenced by the Rapel River and the Pacific Ocean.

AGING

12 months in French oak barrels, and concrete egg.

“The floral aromas of honeysuckle, jasmine, and then chamomile, apricots and pears are really enjoyable. Medium to full body, an oily mouthfeel and a textured finish.”
