Isla Grande Gran Reserva Chardonnay 2019

15.75

Description

Elegantly toasty Chardonnay, judiciously oaked for a rich, creamy finish.

Selected from the best Chardonnay vineyard in the Santa Alicia estate in Maipo Valley, the grapes for this Gran Reserva are cool fermented in steel tanks, prior to maturation in a mixture of new and second hand French oak barrels for up to 12 months.

The result is a rich and creamy Chardonnay with leading flavours of baked apple and pear, stone-fruit and pineapple, with honey, butterscotch and nutty characters coming through on the long, unctuous finish.

Terrific stuff, enjoy on its own as a red-drinker’s white, or with creamy chicken, meaty white fish or risotto.

Producer: Santa Alicia

A past winner of 'Chilean Winery of the Year', Santa Alicia have been producing wines in the heart of Maipo Valley since 1954. Established in Pirque on the foothills of the majestic Andes, the Santa Alicia winery was founded in 1954 by Máximo Valdés, a prominent politician and businessman with great experience in the wine world, who began with planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.

In 2011 the Heller Solari family felt inspired by this traditional family-run business and since acquiring it have grown the winery into one of Chile’s largest, most dynamic and diversified business holdings. Viña Santa Alicia owns 700 hectares of vineyards scattered throughout the Maipo valley (Pirque, María Pinto, Alhué and Melipilla), where it produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carmenère, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, among other varieties. It also has 250 hectares in the Biobío valley, where it grows Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that will enter into its sparkling wines and cool-climate wines, and also approximately 50 hectares in Casablanca.

With grapes from three select communes, a state of the art winery, and judicious use of the finest American and French oak barrels, we believe the wines represent the highest price/quality ratio in Chile.
