Chile produces remarkably good wines at amazingly good prices from its privileged position between the Andes and the Pacific, where winemakers are blessed with some of the most desirable conditions on earth: exceptional soils, ideal temperatures, intense sunlight. There is very little use of pesticide and the philosophy of the winemakers we work with is: minimal interference. We work closely with a handful of the finest winemakers in Chile. The importers source Viña Edmara from two main areas: the rich Central Valley area and the cooler Coastal Area. All exhibit the maximum-freshness fruit for which Chile is famous. Viña Edmara wines reflect Chile and the typicity of each of the varietals and of their terroir.
The grapes are carefully selected from vineyards located in the Valle Central, Chile, where the vines are grown in mainly Franc textured soils.
The grapes were hand picked, de-stemmed, crushed and chilled quickly to preserve the aromatics and varietal flavours. They were pressed and the musts were then separated into different qualities in accordance with the amount of pressure exerted during the crush. The juice was clarified at 8°C by decantation and then fermented in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures of 14°C.
This lively young wine has a vibrant flavour with luscious tropical notes and delicate undertones of wood giving complexity. Balanced acidity sustains the taste and gives freshness to the palate.
This versatile wine is a lovely match for salads, shellfish, fish dishes and white meats.
