Wines of Chile / Cerro Nevado
Cerro Nevado Chardonnay
The grapes come from the Central Valley, one of Chile’s main wine-growing areas. The climatic conditions are similar to those of the Mediterranean area, with hot, dry summers and short, mild winters. Due to its proximity to the sea, there is permanent humidity with morning mists, which leads to slow ripening and high quality wines.
Pale lemon in colour with fruity aromas. The palate has zesty citrus and yellow melon notes with a lovely richness and weight.
The perfect accompaniment to seafood dishes, Japanese food and soft cheeses.
Grapes are harvested when they are at just the right point of maturity to express the full potential of the famous Chardonnay grapes of the Central Valley. After destemming, grapes are cooled down (below 13º for more than 20 days) to prevent fermentation from starting too soon and enhance fruit concentration. The wine remains in contact with fine lees for 60 days to enhance its body and flavour.
