Casas Del Bosque Chardonnay Gran Reserva 2018
A great Chardonnay from the cool valley of Casablanca, known as the best place in Chile for this variety. Night-harvested grapes planted on the sandiest soils within our estate. Skin contacted for 7 days prior to pressing the wine is then fermented and aged in a mixture of new and used French oak barrels for 11 months.
Pale straw in colour. The nose has dried apricots, lemon, and gunflint. The barrels add hints of hay and caramel. In the mouth the wine is tense, creamy and full bodied, with a fresh, long finish.
"On the nose, elegant aromas of citrus rind and red apple combine effortlessly with notes of walnut. In the mouth, flavors of crème brûlée and cookie-dough give way to a fresh, lively acidity."
