From an award-winning winery in Chile's Maule Valley comes this lovely bright, unoaked Chardonnay. It's all citrus and peach – juicy and ripe with just the right bite of freshness. The style of wine that's always useful to have chilled in the fridge.
Chile's wines first came to prominence around 25 years ago, as consumers were bowled over by their elegant, supple, Bordeaux style reds. They had more ripeness than European Cabernets, but were leaner than say Oz. Then their Sauvignons hit our shelves, followed by their charming Chardonnays. Casa Elena is from a family owned bodega, Cremaschi Barriga, situated in the Maule Valley. They grow the Bordeaux classics, both red and white, and we love them. However, they also champion Chardonnay, making this bright, fresh style. Cool fermented, it's all fruit and no oak with intense peach and apple flavour as well as melon and blossom hints. Chill down and serve on its own any time, or with chicken with tarragon, salmon en croûte or creamy pasta.
"Open a bottle of this Chilean beauty and it'll always seem sunny outside. Bright fresh and fruity"
Leonardo Bassano Buyer for Chile
