The Santa Isabel Estate is the westernmost vineyard in the Casablanca Valley one of the most renowned Chilean cool-climate wine regions. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean brings morning fogs and cool afternoon sea breezes that moderate the valley temperatures and humidity. The climate combined with granitic soils promotes long ripening periods allowing the necessary concentration to reveal freshness and acidity. Grapes are hand-harvested and after fermentation a proportion of the wine will spend 6 to 8 months ageing in new French oak barrels.
The wine is bright yellow in colour with an intense combination of tropical fruit aromas especially pineapple, honeydew melon and banana. The fruit lingers on the fresh well-balanced palate along with soft tones of vanilla and toffee. This is a medium-bodied intense rich and complex Chardonnay.
It makes an ideal accompaniment to fresh salads, fish, shellfish and white meats.
