Tierra Antica Chardonnay 2016

These attractively packaged wines show the kind of style that has put Chilean wines on the map over the past few years.

This winery is now at the forefront of modern winemaking in Chile, placing great emphasis on using non-invasive winery techniques so that the purest possible fruit can be expressed.

Wine maker, Constanza Schwarderer, concentrates on working in the vineyard in order to optimise the quality of the grapes produced. This is evident in these fruit-driven wines which show intense varietal character.


Grapes:            100% Chardonnay     


Viticulture:      The temperate Mediterranean style climate, with warm days and cool nights, ensures the grapes obtain optimum maturity. Grapes were hand picked and carefully selected.                      

Vinification:     Grapes picked at the optimum of their maturity. The fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks under controlled conditions, after a gentle pressing of the grape clusters. This wine has some adding of barrel fermented and has no malolactic fermentation in order to preserve the zesty character of the Chardonnay.


Nose/Taste:     Ripe quince fruit, peach and grapefruit, some citric tones. Lightly toasted notes with influence of vanilla. Fruity, with notes of peach, ripe pink grapefruit. Fresh acidity, soft, long, fresh fine wine. Retro-taste balanced in acidity and alcohol.


Serve:              This fresh Chardonnay may be drunk as an aperitif, at any time of the day, with some soft cheeses. It is also the perfect combination for citric cold entrees and seafood.
