Haras de Pirque Chardonnay 2018
Golden yellow colour. The bouquet is a harmony of grapefruit citrus, pineapple, stone fruits, white flowers and dried fruit. This young, fresh wine has a pronounced mineral presence and its citrus flavours are complemented by a delicate hint of wood from light oak ageing. The well-structured palate is savoury and vibrant with a juicy acidity and long finish.
100% Chardonnay, the wine reflects the potential of this grape variety in the Casablanca area. The grapes of the individual vineyard parcels were harvested by hand and given a soft pressing. The must was left to briefly repose in order to favour a natural depositing of its impurities. The must was then fermented in stainless steel tanks and, in part, in small French oak barrels with a capacity of 60 gallons. After 6 months of lees contact, the various lots were blended together and bottled.
Fun Fact: Thanks to its historical use as a racing stable, the winery building is shaped like a horse shoe!
