Indomita, Nostros Reserva Riesling, Bio Bio, Chile, 2021
Viña Indómita occupies a truly spectacular location, between Santiago and Valparaíso in the heart of Casablanca, with an imposing house and hillside sign that wouldn’t look out of place in Hollywood, yet belies a dynamic winemaking team and one of the most exciting winemaking projects in Chile.
Their 100 hectares of vineyards across Casablanca and Maipo, take full advantage of the regions climatic differences, with a focus on Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir in the cooler Casablanca Valley, whilst Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère are the main varieties cultivated in the warmer Maipo region. Environmental sustainability and social responsibility are taken seriously, with measures to minimise waste water and energy consumption, alongside ventures to create local employment across both winemaking and wine tourism.
Grapes are sourced from the area of Yumbel, specifically from El Carmen with a clay-loam soil and 10 to 15% of the slopes facing southeast. Very low yields which are harvested by hand.
Careful temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel for 30 days to keep the aromatic characteristics of the variety. No malolactic fermentation.
No oak ageing
This is an excellent representation to showcase the diversity of this grape. Dry, light, refreshing with some minerality. A beautiful pale green colour, intense lime and lemon aromas with a hint of flora, refreshing and zesty on the palate.
Prawn cocktail, goan fish curry, creamy cod chowder stew.
