Vina Quintay Clava Chardonnay 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Note: "Clementines and fresh peaches come to mind, and make for an exceptionally generous palate sensation. Ending with fresh notes hinting to its Casablanca origin revealing some citrus notes, all bundled up in a balanced finish." - Winery Winery: "Settled in the heart of Casablanca Valley, Quintay winery has succeeded in enhancing the popularity of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir consumption worldwide by creating values that far exceed the quality to price ratio. A mirror image of the central coast of California, Chile has also embarked on the opportunity to produce cool climate Syrah and Chardonnay with fruit forward complexity and balanced acidity. Casablanca represents an ideal ground for growing all of these varietals with temperatures rarely exceeding 77 degrees Fahrenheit. The Humboldt Current in the Pacific creates a cooling effect in the evenings from the close proximity to the sea. Intense luminosity during the day creates a conducive environment for polyphenolic maturity.The rolling fog helps create a longer and slower ripening of the vines. Clava: Showcasing the very best of their region, the Clava Reserve wines focus on displaying the optimal purity of the fruit. Only the most premium grapes from a selection of prominent vineyards are used to ensure a wine of the very best quality. Typically rich and fruit-driven with ample weight, concentration, and intensity of flavor, these wines are designed to benchmark the vintage and region from which they come, while displaying the pure characteristics of the variety." - Winery

This chardonnay is a pleasing blend of old and new world styles, some might even say Burgundy on a budget. Ripe tropical fruit is met with steely restraint and minerality, reminiscent of fruit from the clay and limestone soils of Chablis.
