Production 40km southeast of Valparaiso, the Casablanca Valley is a pre-littoral valley on the region’s coastal plain with close to 4,000 hectares planted to vine. It is characterized by its privileged climate for white varieties, especially for Chardonnay. The grapes ripen slowly in this area, which allows them to produce very aromatic and fruity wines and very expressive flavours. These grapes come from small blocks where the fruit is of a particularly high quality. The valley’s temperate-to-warm climate has a maritime influence due to coastal breezes that moderate temperatures.
Aging: 6 months; 74% in French oak barrels, 8% in French oak foudres, and 18% in ovoid tanks. The blend changes each year and this vintage consists of Chardonnay (72%), Viognier (12%), Marsanne (10%) and Roussanne (10%)
Ideal with fish and seasoned shellfish such as grilled octopus and bouillabaisse with merquén chili powder.
