Wine Enthusiast 87 points - Lightly toasted apple, peach and melon aromas are friendly and come across correct and inviting. This is solid and good in the mouth, with nice acidity and resiny, oaky, melony flavors. Light wood notes accent a fleshy but healthy finish. - Best Buy (Sep 2013)
Chile’s Casablanca Valley is surrounded by coastal mountain ranges creating a diversity of unique microclimates and terroir. Close proximity to the Pacific Ocean provides an exceptionally long growing season for grapes to mature naturally with intense of fruit flavors.
Chardonnay enjoys the long, even season in the coolest areas of the Veramonte estate. Fruit is harvested in cool night and early morning hours to preserve freshness. The grapes are then pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks with a small portion in oak to add texture, complexity and depth. Excellent wine for light meals, salads and seafood.
|Opening in 1998, Veramonte is a striking, modern facility designed by one of Chile’s leading architects, Jorge Swinburn. It houses the latest technology in gravity-based fermentors, ultra-modern stainless steel tanks and high efficiency bottling lines. Built for small-lot wine production, the facility ensures individual vineyard blocks can be fermented and aged separately prior to final blending – allowing winemaking to create authentic, vineyard expressive wines.
Veramonte was founded as a vineyard-based winery whose mission is to produce high quality wines that accurately, authentically express varietal characteristics via Chile’s unique terroirs -- the combined environment of soil, topography, climate and people. Our commitment to nurturing the ties of every wine to its soil or ”sense of place” reflects a dedication to produce terroir expressive wines.
