(winesearcher pro version)
This Chardonnay boasts an attractive light golden-straw color and fresh, lightly buttery, ripe golden apple, pear and citrus aromas, complemented by seductive vanilla and cinnamon/nutmeg scents from oak aging and subtle yeast tones from lees contact. Lush, concentrated and creamy on the palate, its ripe apple, melon, bright citrus and baking spice flavors culminate in a long, beautifully structured finish boasting crisp acidity and zesty mineral and spice tones. Sumptuous, yet refreshing, our 2011 Chardonnay is delicious now, but will handsomely reward another 3-5 years’ bottle aging.
The Guerra family has constantly sought excellence in its wines; the root of which is the quality of the grapes. Therefore, the Lauca Vineyards have been developed in areas which provide exceptional conditions for grape production. Lauca Vineyards currently extends over 665 hectares along the banks of the Maule River in Chile, between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. This region has a privileged Mediterranean type climate, with cold nights and warm days, providing the combination necessary to obtain healthy top quality grapes. Rain falls primarily in winter between the months of June and August. The soil is mostly alluvial with medium depth, an open texture and good drainage capacity - superb conditions for the vines to grow.
"We Constantly work to produce wines of the highest quality. These standards can only be reached by using the best fruit and a visionary wine-making style, where our work is a true statement of quality. Excellence, terroir, passion and talent are words which best define the unique nature of our wines."
-Renato Guerra A. Mananging Director
