Description

A fantastic expression of unoaked Chilean mountain Chardonnay. Ripe white peaches and mango with a touch of vanilla creaminess on the nose with elegant, tight almost mineral flavours on the palate, no oak, very pure, clean and crisp. Fruit for this is sourced from a stunning 200 year old hacienda which sits amidst strawberry fields in the Andean foothills above Talca in the beautiful Maule Valley. The Martin family who own the vineyard at the cool, hilly farm still only grows Sauvignon, Merlot, peaches and apples. They are of French extraction (of course) now forth generation Chilean and today work with winemaker Eric Monnin to create the style of the wine from the 40-60 year old vineyards. Elsewhere Eric Monnin has grown a close relationship with the aptly-named Hacienda Valle Frio, a beautiful 200 year old estate in the rocky,Riverine Maule Valley. Over the last 5 years Eric has worked closely with winemaker Rodrigo on extracting the very best expression of their mountainous site apparent in the Sierra Grande Chardonnay and Cabernet. Produced from old vine Chardonnay (25-40yrs)grown on the Hacienda Valle Frio estate in Maule Valley. The altitude here means that the diurnal temperature variation extends the growing season balancing ripeness and acidity. No oak is used so the wine is a pure expression of the fruit. The old wooden winery in the midst of strawberry fields has survived all of Chile’s worst earthquakes. Food Recommendations:-Perfect with poultry, fish dishes & creamy pasta bakes.
