Of the 2012 vintage Matthew Jukes said: "From the Limari Valley, at the edge of the Atacama Desert, this spectacular chardonnay has serious class on the nose and palate. It is a superb match with chicken pie, and is incredibly good value."

Of the 2012 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: “It is important to remember that oak barrels cost a lot of money, so wines that use oak for fermentation or ageing are often more expensive than those that don’t. This epic creation uses French oak to mature this wine for eleven months and this is what gives it such a luxurious, honey and brioche flavour. Now look at the discounted price! Wow – you must get in here quick because this is a tremendous bargain for a main course white wine.”
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.
