Tasting Notes

A great match of both Chardonnay fruit and the intensity of the Viognier perfume. Fragrant aromas of tropical fruits such as passion fruit and mango with the Viognier contributing peach and apricot notes. The palate has a delightful balance of sweetness and acidity that delivers vibrancy and freshness. A lush and medium bodied wine with excellent length.

History of Reserva Chardonnay Viognier 2019

The Chardonnay and Viognier grapes come from Oveja Negra’s Cuncos and La Esperanza blocks located on its estate San Rafael vineyard in the Maule Valley (124 miles south of Santiago and 12.5 miles from the Andes Mountains range). The Mediterranean climate here is influenced by the tempering Pacific breezes and the Andes chilling effect. Rainfall is concentrated during the winter-spring months (Apr-Nov). During the growing season, the warm days help fully develop flavor ripeness and cool nights contribute to preserving good acidity. Yield was between four and five tons per acre.
