Matetic 2013 Chardonnay Corralillo - Chile

The fruit for the Matetic's 2013 Corralillo Chardonnay come from vineyards located in Chile's Rosario Valley. This area is characterized by its marine influenced climate, which allows the grapes to slowly ripen and develop complex flavors while also maintaining a pleasing natural acidity. Pale yellow in color, this 2013 Chardonnay has fresh, tropical, citrus, and floral aromas with hints of minerality. The palate is firm and fresh with mouth-watering acidity and delicate, well-balanced fruit flavors. The fermentation in French Oak barrels and short time of barrel aging lend to roundness, balance, and rich mouthfeel. [+]
