Wines of Chile / Pico Andino
Pico Andino Chardonnay
Pico Andino invites you to drink in the fine vistas and wine, crafted from the vineyards nestled beneath the mighty Andes peaks.
Wines of Chile continue the legacy of Spanish wine culture in the ‘New World’. The rugged and wild landscapes, with the currents of the Pacific to one side and the Andean slopes to the other, allow excellent climatic conditions for the cultivation of varieties brought from the Old World: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay which prosper with indigenous grapes like Carmenere.
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.
