Novas Gran Reserva, Chardonnay is a vibrant and lush wine, featuring fresh pineapple, hazelnut, and a touch of vanilla on the nose. Its balanced acidity and generous finish make it a perfect match for dark, full-textured fish and white meats with mild sauces. This wine is also excellent with fish soups.

Vineyard and Winery

Marked by the influence of the Pacific Ocean and the Humboldt Current. Constant humidity and average temperatures of 25ºC in the summer and 14ºC in the winter. The Vineyards were planted in 1993, 4,000 plants/hectare located 370m above sea level, vertically positioned with a northeast-southwest orientation and drip irrigated. Casablanca is a cold-climate valley due to the maritime influence of the Pacific Ocean and the Humboldt Current that cools the coastline. The grapes were picked into 400-kg bins and transported to the cellar for immediate chilling. The grapes underwent a selection process on conveyor belts that led to a bladder press for direct pressing. The must was decanted and racked to stainless steel tanks and barrels for fermentation with selected yeasts. Once the alcoholic fermentation was completed, the new wine remained on its lees, which were stirred (battonage) to improve the contact. The wine was aged for 6 months, 33% in French oak barrels, 5% in a French oak foudre, and 62% in a stainless steel tank. Prior to bottling, the wine was fined with adjusted doses of bentonite and cold stabilized to prevent future tartaric precipitations.
