$113.56 / case(12)
Los vascos’s chardonnay is a fresh delicate wine with a harmonious fruity bouquet. The vineyard’s own chardonnay grapes are complemented by a selection of grapes from the casablanca valley further north between santiago and valparaiso. Flavourful fresh and pleasant this wine has an appealing character with good length of fruit. The nose offers an explosion of aromas with notes of melon banana grapefruit and exotic fruit. The growth season for the 2015 vintage was characterized by a spring with cold nights and warmer days unlike the preceding year when the lack of winter rain produced rather unusual climate conditions. The result was a chardonnay of outstanding concentration made from grapes that had ripened to perfection thanks to the optimal temperature oscillation during their development. The absence of frosts enabled production in just the right measure to maintain a good balance between growth and ripeness.
