Nostros Gran Reserva Chardonnay 2020
Nostros Gran Reserva Chardonnay
Nostros Gran Reserva Chardonnay shows a beautiful, bright golden colour. A rich and distinct wine that boasts aromas from Mediterranean fruit (rather than tropical, like tangerine, melon, apple, and sweet pear) to butter and freshly baked bread. That fresh harmony is complemented with the toasted hints from oak and mineral notes. A young, vibrant, tasty, balanced and daring wine. This is one of the best barrel aged Chilean Chardonnays you will find.
Led by Roberto Carranca, the young and dynamic winemaking team at Indomita skillfully craft wines from their great vineyard holdings in two of Chile’s very best regions. The cooler climate Casablanca is great for Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir while the warmer Maipo Valley offers classic Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère. Indomita produce superb, expressive wines that are both beautiful and stunning value for money. The Nostros Reserva and Gran Reserva ranges prove that Chile can offer the very best value and does produce wines with great varietal and regional definition.
Viña Indomita benefits from having the best climates for both whites and reds. Whites such as Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay thrive in the cool climate of the Casablanca Valley, the result of the Pacific's icy Humboldt current and early morning fog.
Reds such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère flourish in the sandy, fast draining soils of the MaipoValley.
Grown in Chile's Casablanca Valley, the climate in this valley can be described as cool Mediterranean. Its closeness to the ocean tempers its climate and winters tend to be mild. The vineyards are planted on the flatter plains and on the gentle slopes of the Casa Blanca valley. Generally, the soil is of relatively poor quality with low fertility, and therefore good for growing wine grapes.
What makes Indomita stand out is the way they strive to achieve excellence with some of the best winemakers in Chile and an incredible state of the art winery in Casablanca. This wine is made from Casablanca fruit which is barrel fermented and aged for 6 months in French oak on its lees.
