De Martino Legado Chardonnay
De Martino Legado Chardonnay has notes of almond and fresh citrus fruits. On the palate the wine has a very smooth mouthfeel with good acidity. This is a result of the vineyards situation in the Limari valley, an up and coming region for Chile in wine innovation.
The drought between 2013 and 2015 killed some vineyards and increased the salinity of the soils. This is therefore reflected in the wines.
Interestingly 2017 was a low-yielding year, even in young vineyards like this one planted in 2009. The juice from pressing the full clusters fermented in used oak barrels with indigenous yeasts, and only 10% of the volume underwent malolactic.
The wine then matured in barrels for 14 months. The whole Legado range shows very varietal, more so in the Chardonnay than the Sauvignon Blanc, with the chalky texture of the limestone soils.
Starting with the 2015 vintage, this wine is produced with grapes from Tabalí. Definitely great for the price. 56,498 bottles produced. Moreover it was bottled in July 2018.
Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate (autumn 2018)
De Martino won Chilean Winery of the Year in 2011.
Furthermore through a network of intellectual partnerships and vineyard acquisition, it has quickly built up a reputation for organic viticulture of the highest quality.
Now they are farming from over 350 different vineyards.
Moreover the corporate vision focuses on sustainability, terroir, and, by logical extension, excellence.
By concentrating on the very best sites for the varieties in question: in Limari, Elqui or Maipo, De Martino now sits at the very top of the Chilean vinous hierarchy.
