Our Reserve Chardonnay has a bright and golden yellow color. Intense aromas of banana and pineapple brilliantly offset the present hints of vanilla. Balanced and unctuous, this wine has a great persistence and a fresh harmony. A great companion to fish, seafood and creamy pasta dishes.
The grapes come from a special selection of 3 and 6 quarters of our finest vineyards in Villa Alegre, Maule Valley, which are specially managed and controlled to maintain a maximum performance of 6 tons per hectare (2.4 tons per acre) and high exposure of the fruit, producing a highly concentrated wine ideal for aging. Once in a stainless steel tank, it's brought to a concentration of 20% to maximize the flavor, ripen tannins and develop color. The wine is aged about 15 months in new French oak barrels, with a production yield of 80,000 bottles.
