2020 CHARDONNAY, Molu, Kalfu. Casablanca, Chile

Bin:  192

Alcohol percentage:  13.5%

Area:

Casablanca Valley was Chile’s first cool-climate area, close to the south Pacific coastline, making its name for crisp and elegant Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Chardonnays have a rare zingy freshness, very different to the classic (old-fashioned) style of new world examples.

Grape variety:

100% Chardonnay, fermented cool and matured for 6 months on its lees, a small proportion (15%) in oak barrels.

Producer:

Kalfu is a range of wines made by the dynamic Ventisquero Wine Estates – they have bought vineyards in some of the most exciting areas in Chile, often planted only recently – Leyda Valley, Casablanca Valley, Colchagua Valley and the inhospitable Atacama Desert.

Old Bridge rating:

Very tropical, juicy fruit. A ripeness born of the sunshine but a super-brightness also indicative of the relatively cool climate. The oak isn’t dominant at all, this is a lovely, easy style of Chardonnay for drinking on its own.
