Echeverria Chardonnay Gran Reserva 2015

Vina Echeverria is a long established Chilean family owned and managed estate, producing high quality wines. Their 75 hectares of vineyards, in one single block, and their state-of-art winery are located on the outskirts of the town of Molina in the Curicó Valley, 200Km south of Santiago.

Vina Echeverria only make wine from their estate grown grapes, all of which originate from ungrafted select clones of pre-phylloxera French rootstock of Cabernet Sauvignon (48%), Sauvignon Blanc (30%), Chardonnay (20%) and Merlot (2%). High priority is given to care in the vineyards and canopy management to control vegetative growth. Exposure to sunlight and air movement on the leaves are maximised, leading to almost organic viticulture with the minimum use of agrochemical products.

All members of the Echeverria family are involved at the winery making an unbeatable team, bonded together by the strongest forces of all: deep family roots, a shared passion for winemaking, an uncompromising search of excellence and a total commitment to their customers’ satisfaction.

Grapes:             100% estate grown Chardonnay from 17 year old vines that were hand harvested in March.

 Soil:                 Loam & clay with well drained gravely subsoil.                     

 

Vinification:      Whole cluster pneumatic pressing. Static sedimentation for 24 to 48 hours at 8C. 40% is fermented in 225 litre French and American oak barrels at 18-20C for 15 days and 60% is fermented in stainless steel tanks at 14-17c for 25 days. The wine underwent partial malolactic fermentation. Extended barrel maceration on fine lees for a further 6 months. Alc 13.5%, R/s 2.3 g/l

Serve:              Chilled as an aperitif or to accompany fish, white meats, smoked foods and cheese.

 

Taste:               Aromas of ripe fruits like pineapples and peaches with delicate scents of honey, vanilla and spices. Round and well balanced, this wine has a                                crisp acidity and mild toasty oak flavours that add complexity

Good Summer wine

The Echevverria chardonnay is an excellent summer drink. Especially with strawberries and cream.
