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.
