Add to basket
Wine of D.O. Limarí, Chile
This Chardonnay is from a vineyard at 135m above seal level on the south bank of the Limarí River. The limited production wine was fermented and then aged in French oak for eleven months. Striking minerals and pear aromas are synonymous with this part of the Limarí Valley north of Santiago. The oak adds generous helpings of vanilla and hazelnut. With a full and vibrant palate, the crisp acidity grants it a long finish.
This Chardonnay Special Reserve was created in tribute to the title conferred in 1718 by King Felipe V of Spain upon the Concha of Toro Family. Of a very limited production, from our prime vineyards on the south bank of the Limari River. This Chardonnay embodies Concha y Toro's culture and tradition in the art of winemaking.
A crisp mineral Chardonnay, deeply concentrated with a silky mouth-feel. It is loaded with pear and fig with a hint of hazelnut character alongside the limestone chalky zing which the Limarí Valley delivers in white varieties.

Hand-picked grapes harvested throughout March create this zesty, mineral Chardonnay. Fermented in oak barrels to give a creamy nuance to the wine, then aged in French Burgundian oak barriques for 12 months. Only a third of the barrels used for ageing are new, so the oak influence is light, to give a toasty, buttery note.
Viña Concha y Toro owns around 8,800 hectares of vineyards in some of the best locations in Chile and Argentina. This enormous investment in vineyard ownership gives Viña Concha y Toro complete control over wine quality from planting of varieties in various locations throughout Chile and Argentina, to harvesting, cellaring and bottling. Marques de Casa Concha is a small range of single vineyard wines made from classic grape varieties. Winemaker Marcelo Papa chooses the most suitable location for each grape variety and also uses a variety of French oak barrels from some of the best cooperages in France to achieve an elegant and harmonious style to this austere range of wines.
At the edge of the Atacama Desert, one of the driest places on Earth, the Limarí Valley is at the outer limit of wine production in Chile. Despite the extreme conditions, it is a paradise for grape production in addition to the many other fruits which are grown here. Without irrigation, the only plant that will grow is the cactus. The climate is cool, owing to the region’s proximity to the Pacific Ocean and the significant drop in temperature after sunset. Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay deliver spectacular results with intense flavours, crisp acidity and a mineral quality. Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon deliver an impressive concentration of colour and flavour with an elegance and freshness that is unique within our portfolio of wines.
