Gran Hacienda Chardonnay, Chile


Santa Rita was founded in 1880, a boom time for Chile, and was a driving force from the very start; the founder, Domingo Fernández, introduced not just French equipment and expertise but also electricity to the Alto Jahuel region, where the winery is still based. As Chile’s second largest owner of vineyards, Santa Rita can draw on a great diversity of terroir, where the various grape varieties are matched to the soil and climate of individual regions.

The aroma recalls tropical fruit, mingling with green apples and rounded out by an alluring hint of zesty orange peel. A fresh, ripe flavour with a round, fruity mouthfeel leads to a persistent aftertaste.

The grapes for this wine are from a selection of vineyards in the Valle Central area. The climate here is principally Mediterranean, but with cooler nights due to cold winds blowing down from the Andes.
