Producer Summary:Santa Carolina, founded in 1875 and currently owned by the Larrain family, proudly champions Chilean Heritage with a focus on innovation. Through the journey of the valleys, Santa Carolina respects each varietals typicity and treasures the expression of fruit. The estates, owned and managed by Santa Carolina, are located in Maipo, Rapel, Leyda, Casablanca and Colchagua.
Short Tasting Note:A perfectly balanced wine with tropical fruit flavours of pineapple and peach, underpinned by toasty oak and a fresh mineral note on the finish.
Long Tasting Note:A perfectly balanced wine with flavours of peach, orange peel and hazelnut, underpinned by toasty oak and a fresh mineral note on the finish. The grapes were grown in the Limarí Valley located in the north of Chile. With low precipitation, its semi-arid climate is influenced by the marine breeze that blows from the ocean, which leads to dry springs and summers, and large diurnal temperature differentials, particularly during summer. Its granite and clay soil is ideal for white varieties like Chardonnay. The grapes were handpicked and fermented in 500 litre French oak barrels. The wine was then kept on its lees for 12 months and aged for 6 months in bottle prior to release. This wine suits seafood dishes, such as seared scallops, salmon and creamy sauces.
