Gran Cuvée: Chardonnay 2007
Chardonnay Gran Cuvée hails from a single vineyard in slope, located
at 700 meters above sea level, at the foot of the Andes Mountains Range.
This vine is a clone originating 100% from Burgundy, with an annual production
of 7.000 to 7.500 kg/ha.
bunches of the Chardonnay Gran Cuvée are pressed entirely, and
the juices separated according to their quality (only the best are selected
to produce "our cuvee"). After an overnight clarification, the
musts are put in French oak barrels where they will ferment at temperatures
controlled between 18 and 20ºC.
It is a wine that will age very well (between 5 to 6 years). However, its qualities can already be appreciated. It has a shiny gold color, an intense, elegant and complex nose. The first notes are toasted, buttery with hints of honey and dry fruits, resulting of the aging in oak.
Chardonnay Gran Cuvée has a good structure and aromatic persistence.
