Chardonnay

Intense tropical fruit aromas of peach, pineapple and hints of banana perfectly mixed with sweet notes of vanilla. Mouth watering, right?

Variety:

95% Chardonnay, 5% Semillón

Origin:

Central Valley.

Vinification:

The grapes are processed as soon as they reach the winery. They are macerated at low temperatures (10-12°C) for 4 to 6 hours, and then they are transferred to the press, where the first and second grape must is separated. This provides the option of combining them later for the final blend. Next, the must is decanted at a low temperature (11°C) for 24 hours. The clarified must is separated and inoculated with selected yeasts. Fermentation is carried out for 15 days under controlled temperatures below 15°C, in order to preserve and enhance the aromas, the fresh character of the grape, and the intensity of the fruit.

Tasting Notes

Clean pale-yellow in color.
Tropical aromas such as peach, pineapple and banana hints combined exquisitely with sweet vanilla notes.
The fresh-fruit sensation is enhanced by the wine’s perfect acidity, which balances the sweetness and gives a long pleasing finish.

Serving Suggestion

Ideally paired with game birds, veal, pork, fish and pasta with cream, butter or mushroom sauces.
