Colour: Golden yellow.
Nose: Intense, dominated by peach, pineapple, green apple with a lightly floral touch and a bit of toast.

History:

Carmen's team of wine experts and growers has travelled throughout Chile in search of the best places to harvest its grapes, analysing the soils, climate, and temperatures of each zone. The result is that in modern times, with a track record going back over 160 years, the company possesses valleys in Chile's finest areas for the production of each grape variety, producing fine wines that highlight and express the best characteristics of each variety in its own ideal location.

Regional Information:

The grapes for our Reserva Especial Chardonnay come from old vineyards in Casablanca that yield 12 tons per hectare. The vines are planted on sandy soil and influenced by the Pacific Ocean. Our Casablanca vineyards are 30 km from the Pacific Ocean and receive the benefits of the sea breezes that cool the temperatures during the growing season. The Casablanca terroir is considered world class and allows us to make a Chardonnay that is characterized by its greatness.
