TASTE
A particularly sophisticated Chardonnay, offering subtle aromas of pear, apple and citrus, alongside floral and toasted hazelnut notes. A component aged on lees brings weight and texture, balanced by the citrus freshness on the palate. A model of classical elegance from this great grape variety.

PRODUCER
Morandé was founded in 1996 by Pablo Morandé, and found immediate recognition both domestically and abroad. Morandé are true pioneers – they were the first family to develop the Casablanca D.O., recognising the fantastic potential of this cool-climate wine region. They also led the way in reviving old viticultural regions such as Maule and Itata, working with old dry-farmed bush vines and unconventional varieties such as Carignan, País and Cinsault. All of the wines are produced with grapes from Morandé’s own vineyards. Their winemaking philosophy is guided by seeking the right terroir for each grape variety, and with significant vineyard holdings they are well placed to achieve this.

VINEYARD
The grapes come from the best vineyards of the Belén estate in the Lo Ovalle sector of Casablanca. The soils are granitic clay with some quartz, flat topography and low fertility. The climate is temperate to cold, with notable marine influence due to the proximity of the Pacific Ocean that permits a slow ripening encouraging the development of aromas and a fresh acidity. The grapes were hand-harvested in the first week of April.

WINERY
The wine was fermented in a mixture of 300, 500 and 4,000-litre barrels, of both French oak and acacia. Forty percent was fermented on skins; the rest was whole-bunch pressed. The wine matured in barrel for ten months before bottling.
