Marques de Casa Concha Chardonnay
Light yellow in color. Combining richness with elegance and vibrancy this ripe, delicious wine serves up tasty white pear, mineral notes and toasty hazelnut. Deeply concentrated with a silky texture and layers of pears and ripe figs and mineral flavors with a long and vibrant finish.
VINEYARD OF ORIGIN: Quebrada Seca Vineyard, D.O. Limarí, Limarí Valley.
VINEYARD DESCRIPTION: The Quebrada Seca is located 190 m a.s.l., just 22 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean on the north bank of the Limarí River. The clay soils are rich in calcium carbonate. The temperatures are cold and the mornings are cloudy, which allows the fruit to ripen slowly and produce fresh wines. The Chardonnay vines come from the Mendoza, 95.76, and 548 clones and are trellised to vertical shoot position.
SOIL: Allluvial and colluvial. Red clay on the top and calcium carbonate on the subsoil. Excellent drainage
CLIMATE: Coastal. The cool breezes from the coast blow directly into the valley and moderate the temperatures, which, combined with the typical morning clouds and indirect light on the grapes during most of the day allow the grapes to ripen slowly and thus produce fresher wines.
AGING: 12 months in French oak barrels.
AGING POTENTIAL: Drink now or cellar through 2024.
