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.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 2 years

Of the 2011 vintage, Terry Kirby said: "Banish all thoughts of over-oaked, over-creamy New World Chardonnay - here the oak is restrained and refined, with flavours of vanilla and apricots balanced with a fresh, zingy, acidity, thanks to the limestone soils of Chile's Limari Valley."
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.
