Tasting notes
Clean and bright, golden yellow. Surprisingly elegant with its aromas of white peaches, papaya, mango and huzelnut. Medium to full-bodied, it is creamy and mineral-rich on the palate. The long finish incorporates all the flavors

The 2012 Marques de Casa Concha Chardonnay is produced with fruit from the Limari valley in the north of Chile on calcareous soils and fermented in oak barrels where the wine aged for one year. Only 10-15% of the wine goes through malolactic fermentation to keep acidity. It has a restrained nose with aromas of white peach, citric hints, a chalky sensation and good volume in the palate. Medium-bodied, the low toast oak has respected the fruit, delivering well-integrated aromas. Drink now-2017.

Technical notes
Origin: Santa Isabel Vineyard. Maipo Valley. Soil: In the highest part of the Maipo Valley, the soil is a coluvial clay loam affording good water retention and drainage. These soils are richer in minerals that contribute to the structure of Chardonnay. y. Climate: Semi-arid Mediterranean, influenced by the Andes Mountains. This is the coolest part of the Maipo Valley whose large swings in temperature slows ripening of the grapes. Harvest: Hand picked. March 12-16, 2002. Aging: Fermented in new and one and two years old French oak barrels "sur lie" for eleven months. Then aged for a period of 4 months after bottling.

Food pairing
A delightful accompaniment to white meat, shellfish and fresh cheeses.
