Haras de Pirque Chardonnay Élégance 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

In 1991, after a highly successful business career in Chile's private sector, entrepreneur Eduardo Matte acquired an estate that he would later name Haras de Pirque, in the southwestern part of Pirque, a prestigious winegrowing area situated in the Maipo Valley. Eduardo Matte's objectives included launching a major winery project, and expanding and improving the existing thoroughbred farm. The property- today covering 600 hectares - gently ascends the lower slopes of a spur of the Andes Mountains. In these foothills, between 1992 and 1993, one hundred and twenty hectares of vineyards were planted, mainly with the reds Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carmenère, and the whites Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Haras de Pirque's name honors the country´s oldest thoroughbred breeding stud, founded in 1892. The fruit for this wine comes from Haras de Pirque’s own vineyards, Maipo Valley. The nose on this Chardonnay features elegant notes of toasted hazelnuts and fresh tropical fruit. On the palate there are refined toffee characters, and the wine is rich and concentrated with citrussy notes on the long finish.

Haras de Pirque's name honors the country´s oldest thoroughbred breeding stud, founded in 1892.The stud has four extensively pedigreed stallions that have sired exceptional offspring. The farm's success is reflected by a long succession of trophies won in the nation's main horseracing events and an unrivaled leadership in all of the sport's local categories: broodmare sires, stallions and general standings. In addition, the haras is a prominent supplier for breeders and owners in South and North America, and maintains approximately 30 racehorses in the national competition circuit. Along with winegrowing and thoroughbred raising, Eduardo Matte gives free rein to his other passions, one of which is the collecting of old carriages, all drawn by suitably bred horses.The collection currently features 18 models with a stable of 30 horses that, together with four thoroughbred stallions and nearly two hundred mares and foals, trot and gallop through Haras de Pirque's wide, green pastures Read less
