La Misión: Chardonnay 2006
La Misión Chardonnay vines
come from the highest point of our vineyards, which are located in Pirque,
in the heart of the Maipo Valley, at 2,000 feet above the sea level. It
is as well, at this very same altitude, that we grow our most traditional
and oldest vines.
Once the grapes from the Chardonnay vines are harvested, they are pressed according to the 'Champagne' method.
process involves pressing the entire bunches very gently. Thanks to this
technique, we separate the 'Cuvée' (first juice) and the 'taille'
pressing), which allows keeping a high concentration of fruity flavors
in the wine.
La Misión Chardonnay 2006 is very fruity and highlights
notes of pear, white peach, and a hint of smoke which is very characteristic
of some vines issued from the Pirque area.
