A Chardonnay from the coastal area near the Pacific Ocean in the Maule valley,
which is a privileged origin for growing cold climate varieties. This bright yellow
wine with golden hints is recognized for its strong citrus aromas which
accompany a superb mineral character. In nose, aromas of tropical fruits
like pineapple combine with citric
grapefruit notes. In the mouth, fruity flavors combine with a balanced
minerality, giving it a nice freshness.
