Le Chardonnay Grand Vin, Casablanca Valley, 2017

Lot: 1132 Supplier: VILLARD ESTATE Country/Region: Chile/Casablanca Vall Major Grape: Chardonnay

Golden yellow in colour, Le Chardonnay Grand Vin 2017 has aromas of passion fruit, lemon curd and toast. On the palate, flavours of ripe fruits, cooked lemons, quince, white peaches and toast emerge. The flavours continue to linger, complemented by a crisp citrus finish. 60% of the grapes were fermented in French oak barrels with 10% undergoing malolactic fermentation in barrel. The wine remained in barrel for eight and a half months with regular "bâtonnage". The other 40% was matured in a new French oak tank. The oak is present in a complementary rather than dominating way, apparent yet not distracting, and producing a delightfully ripe style but not overtly buttery or oaky.
