Valle de Casablanca
This wine's fresh acidity partners perfectly with shellfish dishes and chowders, as well as delicate white fish or mild cheeses.
The complex nose presents citrusy and grapefruit with lime notes and a subtle touch of white pepper and delicate herbs. The smooth palate bursts with freshness balanced by good volume and persistence.
The landscape generally consists of rolling hills that rise toward the east and the Coastal Mountains. The poor, shallow soils are alluvial in origin with sandy loam textures, good permeability and relatively low yields with respect to other Chilean wine regions. Cool climate conditions allow the fruit to ripen more slowly, resulting in grapes with a tremendous concentration of aromas and flavors in white varieties such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes that went into this wine were hand picked during the first week of March, when the fruit had reached the desired level of ripeness. The fruit came from the Casablanca Estate, where the vertically positioned vines produce and average yield of eleven tons per hectare. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts in our Maipo Valley winery. Temperatures were carefully managed to remain cool, with pump overs and delicate lees stirring to reach the desired results. The wine was fined with bentonite and cold-stabilized before bottling to prevent tartaric precipitations in the bottle.
