De Martino Tres Volcanes Chardonnay 2017

The new Tres Volcanes Chardonnay from De Martino is sourced from Malleco in southern Chile, some 650km south of Santiago. Malleco, located between the Andes Mountain Range and Nahuelbuta Mountain Range, is a wine region still in its infancy and with a marginal climate, high rainfall and short growing season, it is a challenging region for grape growers. However, the crisp, fresh wines produced here are slowly beginning to attract international attention. This single vineyard belongs to Errázuriz winemaker Francisco "Pancho" Baettig, who planted it in 2013 on clay and volcanic soils in Traiguén. Whole bunch pressed and fermented in used barriques the wine was then matured in oak foudres for 16 months prior to release. 2017 marks the first vintage of this cool-climate Chardonnay that displays clean focussed flavours alongside nicely integrated oak.
