Capo Nativo Chardonnay, 2018 (Organic)

Inspired by the vineyard ecosystems and the animals that roam freely amongst them. Each label depicts a different "chief" animal, representative of the organic practices followed.

"The Lumberjack" - Within the circle or life, the indigenous fox Zorro Culpeo is at the top of the food chain. They keep moles and other rodents at bay from potentially eating roots and early vine shoots.


100% Chardonnay

How it's made

Casablanca Valley can be identified by it's closeness to the Pacific Ocean, influenced by the coastal breeze, which moderates temperatures. The land is basically formed by hills that increase in heights as it goes east towards the Coastal Mountain Range. It has an alluvial origin, with sandy textures of high permeability, poor and shallow, which causes the valley to have low yields, compared to others. The temperatures are colder and templates, causing a slower ripening with the fruit which produces great character in flavor and aroma. The grapes come from vineyards that are approximately 12 years old at the Casablanca Estate, trellised in simple vertical shoot position, with an average yield of 12 tons a hectare. They were hand-picked into bins during the first week of March when they had reached the ideal state of ripeness. The grapes were transported to our Nancagua winery for vinification in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures with selected yeasts, pump overs and delicate lees stirring to reach the desired final result. Prior to bottling the wine, it was fined with adjusted doses of bentonite and cold stabilized to prevent tartaric precipitations in the bottle.
