2019 Signos de Origen 'La Vinilla', Emiliana, Casablanca Valley 14.0%

94% Chardonnay and 6% Roussanne.  This is pale yellow in colour, the nose has fruity aromas of apricot and a slight nuttiness.  The palate has tropical fruit flavours with a refreshing tang of acidity and a gentle kiss of oak which lifts the fruit further. The finish is robust and creamy - very much a food wine. Details of organic agriculture at Emiliana

40km southeast of Valparaiso, the Casablanca Valley is a pre-littoral valley on the region's coastal plain with close to 4,000 hectares planted to vine. It is characterized by its privileged climate for white varieties, especially for Chardonnay. The grapes ripen slowly in this area, which allows them to produce very aromatic and fruity wines and very expressive flavours. These grapes come from small blocks where the fruit is of a particularly high quality. The valley's temperate-to-warm climate has a maritime influence due to coastal breezes that moderate temperatures. In the summer, they cool the air and maintain an average temperature of 26°C (79°F). The area has no threat of frost for approximately 10 months of the year. Average annual precipitation is 450 mm (17.7 inches) and is concentrated between May and October. November to April are dry months, and the average annual temperature is 14.4°C (58°F). Soil is alluvial with sandy-loam texture and moderate fertility.

The grapes were hand-picked and transported to the winery for immediate chilling and passed on to a bladder press for whole bunch pressing. The must was allowed to decant and the clean juice was racked into stainless steel tanks for partial fermentation and then racked again into to new French oak barrels to finish the fermentation. The wine remained in barrels on its lees with periodic battonage for 5 months to add complexity. Prior to bottling the wine was fined with bentonite and cold stabilized to prevent the formation of tartrate crystals.
