Tasting Notes

Clean pale yellow in colour. 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 sweetness and gives for a long, pleasing finish.

Food Matches

Serve with steamed or grilled fish, fish pâtés, chicken or vegetable terrines and pasta or risotto with spring vegetables. So many options!

Vinification

A bright and rounded wine made from Chardonnay grapes grown in both the Central Valley, Casablanca and Leyda. Harvested in the cool dawn and the grapes pressed pneumatically, the juice is settled in tank prior to a cool ferment in steel tank using natural yeasts for around 23 days, with a portion of the wine then being transferred into oak barriques to add vanilla, spice and buttery characters. The oaked wine is then married with the tank wine and then stored and settled, before a light filtering and bottling
