Tierra Antica Chardonnay

£9.95

A creamy yet elegant wine with luscious tropical fruit and white peach flavours, beautifully balanced by a fresh finish.

The Tierra Antica range includes a collection ofattractively packaged wines which represent wonderful value for money. The grapes are carefully sourced from the Valle Central. The vines are verticallypositioned, spaced at 1.5 x 2.2m and drip irrigated. The crops are green harvested to eliminate short shoots and to concentrate the flavours in the remaining berries.

Most of the grapes were hand-picked the first week of March and only a small proportion of the fruit was machine-harvested to ensure freshness. Carefully selected bunches were fermented at 12° to 16° in stainless steel to retain freshness, aromatics and varietal characteristics. The wine was stabilised for 15 to 20 days at a temperature of 4°C and then earth-filtered prior to bottling.
