ESPINO CHARDONNAY

This Chardonnay, unlike the Espino reds, is grown on our farm in San Juan de Pirque, a small hamlet above the Maipo Valley in the Muy Alto Maipo at almost 1,000 meters above sea level. The Chardonnay grows next the hillsides where many slides and erosion over the centuries have transformed what are extensively alluvial river bank soils into partially colluvial soils in composition. The sharper less weathered, less sedimentary stones of the these soils allow the Chardonnay to develop a more minerally character not common for this variety in the Maipo. It is the altitude and this special soil combination that make this wine differentiate itself. The nose is minerally with cooked pears, membrillo and key lime. In the mouth it is fresh with lemon sherbot, honey, a hint of saltiness with a round medium length finish. It has a a certain touch of creaminess but it is anything but buttery.
