Our Wines

Corte de Campo / Coastal

Origin

Casa Blanca Valley
Chardonnay from our own Belen property in Casablanca, located in a sector closest to the coast, where the climate is highly influenced by the cold Pacific Ocean, which ensures and enables slow ripening. The vineyards are planted to high density in search of maximum quality and fruit expression. Granitic soils in the flat areas with more clay on the hillsides.

Harvest Report:
the 2018 vintage is marked by high temperatures presented in the months of January, February and March, which resulted in a harvest earlier than normal. It was a year of low production and yields in Casablanca, but with a great concentration on the resulting wines. 

Ageing:
the Chardonnay was aged for 8 months in French oak barrels. 

Vinification
the grapes were pressed immediately upon arriving at the cellar. The juice was decanted and then partially fermented in barrels and the rest in stainless steel tanks. The resulting wine was held on its lees until blending and bottling. The Viognier component (15%) was cold macerated prior to fermentation, then decanted and fermented entirely in stainless steel with no oak contact.
