Indomita, Nostros Chardonnay Gran Reserva, Casablanca, Chile, 2021
The dynamic winemaking team at Indómita skillfully craft wines from their vineyards 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. Indómita produce superb, expressive wines that are both beautiful and stunning value for money.
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.
Grapes were crushed within an hour of harvesting. Maceration at a low temperature for 6 hours followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks and ageing on its lees. 50% in barrels for 6-9 months.
6 to 9 months
% wine oaked: 50
% new oak: 15
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.
Eggs benedict, roast pumpkin & spinach lasagne, pork schnitzel.
