Las Pizarras Chardonnay 2021 6x75cl

Aconcagua Costa


Sourced entirely from our Aconcagua Costa Estate from specific lots that have a significant component of metamorphic rock including slate (pizarras, in Spanish).Given the extreme of this cool climate site, as well as the uniqueness of its soils and elevations, each small block ripens at its own pace. Its proximity to the cool Pacific Ocean and its well-drained soils, with high level of slate and metamorphic rock, allow the Estate to produce Chardonnay of exceptional complexity, depth, minerality and natural acidity.


Late and cold season, long and gentle ripeness. Fresh, elegant and aromatic wines. Thanks to the winter rains, the adequate water reserves in the soil predicted an excellent vineyard development. However, the extremely cold conditions in spring, with over 70% cloudy days during November and December, produced a delay in the phenology of more than 20 days. The enormous rains at the end of January that affected the Central Valley to the South had no impact on our coastal vineyards in the Aconcagua. It only rained 9 mm, with no ignificant effect on the fruit’s health.


Grapes were hand-harvested between March 5th and March 23rd during the early morning hours to ensure the fruit arrives at the winery under cool temperatures and ready for 100% whole cluster pressing. The juice was clarified before being moved by gravity flow into small stainless steel tanks for fermentation. In order to maintain the fresh character of the site, 50% of blend underwent malolactic fermentation progressing slowly in the cellar until an ideal acid- balance was achieved. The wine was drained and then kept for 13 months in French oak barrels, 15% of them new.
