General description

Variety / Style

  • Chardonnay

Denomination of Origin (D.O.)

  • Quebrada Seca Vineyard, D.O. Limarí, Limarí Valley.

Vineyard

The Quebrada Seca is located 190 m a.s.l., just 22 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean on the north bank of the Limarí River. The clay soils are rich in calcium carbonate. The temperatures are cold and the mornings are cloudy, which allows the fruit to ripen slowly and produce fresh wines. The Chardonnay vines come from the Mendoza, 95.76, and 548 clones and are trellised to vertical shoot position.

Soil

Allluvial and colluvial. Red clay on the top and calcium carbonate on the subsoil. Excellent drainage.

Climate

Coastal. The cool breezes from the coast blow directly into the valley and moderate the temperatures, which, combined with the typical morning clouds and indirect light on the grapes during most of the day allow the grapes to ripen slowly and thus produce fresher wines.

AGING

12 months in French oak barrels.

A pretty chardonnay with bright and vibrant apple, lemon and cream character. Full to medium body, with a beautiful, intense finish. Salty. The tiny 10% malo gives this wine some density but leaves it bright. It's all barrel fermented but only about one-third new. Wonderful value.

“Steely and rich, with powerful ­flavors of dried apple, pear and allspice. Luscious honeysuckle details show midpalate, accented by notes of dried citrus on the crisp finish.”
