TERRANOBLE Chardonnay Reserva - Casablanca Valley, Chile
This soft, clean and bright white wine has exceptional Chardonnay aromas with a touch of fatness from the 20% of wine that was barrel fermented. There are notes of tropical fruits such as pineapple together with some citrus aromas such as lime and lemon. It is beautifully balanced on the palate and finishes with a long, fresh yet creamy aftertaste. It makes and excellent partner to fish and seafood but really shows its class with a risotto.

About the grower
In 1993, the founders of Sol De Andes embraced their dreams of taking full advantage of Chile's natural bounty to make great wines and founded their estate in the Maule Valley. The philosophy of Sol De Andes is to produce elegant and enjoyable wines that highlight the distinct characteristics of each grape variety by combining cutting-edge technology with traditional winemaking skills.
Poor soils, excellent exposure to sunshine and the absence of rain at harvest time are unique and invaluable conditions for the production of quality wines in Chile. On its daily journey over the Andes to the Pacific, the sun illuminates the vineyards and this was the inspiration for the Sol De Andes ("Sun From The Andes") name. The 450 hectares of Sol De Andes vineyards are located in the foothills of the Andes in the Maule, Casablanca and Colchagua Valleys where the influence of the Pacific moderates the climate and where the diurnal temperature fluctuation preserves the balance and freshness of the wines.
The Sol De Andes winery sits next to its oldest vineyards in San Clemente in the Maule Valley, where cutting-edge technology and traditional winemaking skills are combined to enable them to make the best possible wines.
