Antawara Reserva Chardonnay 2019

13.50

Description

From coastal vineyards on the outer edge of Chile’s Central Valley, grapes are cold-soaked and cool fermented in stainless steel, followed by extended maturation on the lees. Around 30% is then placed in uncharred oak barrels for 3 months before final blending and bottling.

Clean and golden in color, this Reserve Chardonnay displays tropical fruit aromas of banana, melon and pineapple, in addition to fresh herbs and a hint of oak spice. The palate is lush and fruity, a fine minerality and crisp natural acidity supporting wonderful fruit flavors and soft, savoury spices, with good complexity and an elegant finish.

Serve this with roast chicken and all the trimmings, it’s superb.

Antawara is a young winery, only founded in 2006 by talented winemaker Jaime Muñoz. Jaime had worked as a winemaker for large wineries in both Chile and France before deciding the time was right to set up his own venture. In 2019, the company acquired a new winery in the foothills of the Andes, 100km south of Santiago, and entered the top 20 of Chilean exporters.

Vineyards are centred around the Maipo Valley, an historic wine region going back 500 years from the original colonial plantations, and renowned for producing fine red wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carménère. Hot summer days are followed by cold nights, old vineyards on the stony slopes of the sheltered foothills providing the perfect growing conditions.
