Echeverria Chardonnay Gran Reserva

This charming and elegant Chardonnay has intense primary aromas of apricots and peaches, complemented by notes of vanilla and toffee. Rich yet fresh on the palate, it has a balancing acidity and flavours of dried fruit and pineapple, which carry through to a long finish.

Half the must was fermented in 225 litre French oak barrels for 15 days, while the remaining half was fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine was aged on its fine lees in 225 litre French oak barrels, for 12 months.

Viña Echeverría is a family-run estate winery, owned and managed by the Echeverría family. Established in 1930, but with an agricultural heritage going back to the 1700s, Viña Echeverría is as much today, as always, driven by a shared passion for winemaking and an uncompromising search for excellence. Viña Echeverría combines nearly a century of viticulture and winemaking experience with a modern state-of-the- art winery, to produce an extensive collection of quality wines. The ‘No es Pituko’ range represents a radical departure from the rest of the more traditional Echeverría wines, both in look and make-up, being vinified naturally, without any additions at any stage. Viña Echeverría has recently been awarded its Sustainable Winery status by Wines of Chile, as well as its ISO9000 certification.
