Viña Echeverría Chardonnay Gran Reserva 2022
Viña Echeverría is a family-run estate winery, owned and managed by the Echeverría family. Established in 1930, but with an agricultural heritage going back to the 1700s, Viña Echeverría is as much today, as always, driven by a shared passion for winemaking and an uncompromising search for excellence. The grapes for the Gran Reserva Chardonnay are sourced from a vineyard located in Molina in Chile's Curico Valley. Half of the must was fermented in French oak barrels and the other half was fermented in stainless steel. After fermentation the wine was aged on its fine lees in 225 litre French oak barrels, for 12 months prior to bottling. This charming and elegant Chardonnay has intense primary aromas of apricots and peaches, complemented by notes of vanilla and toffee. Rich yet fresh on the palate, it has a balancing acidity and flavours of dried fruit and pineapple, which carry through to a long finish.
