Haras de Pirque’s own vineyards, Maipo Valley. Grapes are harvested by hand during March and beginning of April. 7 ton/ha
Individual vineyard parcels were hand harvested into small picking cases, which minimize bruising and maceration to the Chardonnay bunches. The fruit was whole bunch pressed and allowed to briefly settle before 50% of the juice was lightly racked to one and two year old French barrels for fermentation. After six months in oak the wine was racked, blended and bottled.
Color: Golden yellow, with greenish hue
Flavor: Rich, intriguing nose with some herb-citrus notes. Marvelous grapefruit in mouth feel. Ripe, nutty, full flavored palate shows lots of fruit character. Very tasty.
