Our Oveja Negra Reserva Chardonnay Viognier comes from Chile’s Central Valley, which is surrounded by mountains that generate an ideal microclimate for viticulture. The valley has a Mediterranean climate with lower temperatures and higher rainfall in the south than in the north. Winters are mild and summers are generally moderately warm and dry. Geographic features include rivers and hills that create characteristics that are ideal for the different components of the wine.This Oveja Negra was made with Chardonnay and Viognier grapes from the Río Bonito and San Juan Estates, respectively. Grapes : 82% Chardonnay and 18% Viognier Region : Chile / Central Valley Maker : Rafael Tirado Notes : Rich white colours. Toasty oak, plum and vanilla aromas. Complex palate with meaty, dark fruit and oak flavours. Round and fleshy but with robust tannins for ageing. Serve : Ideal for serving with dilled salmon medallions, poultry, veal, risotto and salad ABV : 13.5% Suitable for Vegetarians
