Maray Limited Edition Chardonnay
Yummy buttery goodness...
Maray is an ancient grinding mill used in Chilean mining to break down large pieces of rock. The diversity of minerals found in Chile's soil is what gives these wines their personality and character.
A small scale, exclusive winery. Head winemaker, Felipe Müller East, has a wealth of experience from working at wineries all over the world and has won 'Winemaker of the Year' on several occasions. The winery itself is built to be gravity fed, letting nature do the hard work of transporting fruit and wine about the place, avoiding expending any unnecessary energy pumping the stuff around. Clever, eh?
Grapes are carefully handpicked into small 20kg containers to protect them from any damage. Following a further hand selection process of the best bunches, fermentation is carried out in French oak barrels with frequent battonage. The wine is then aged for 10 months in 100% French oak barrels.
Yellow colour with hints of green. An amazingly fresh nose with citrus and fresh pineapple, and just a hint of oak. The palate is full bodied and complex, but with a nice acidity and a slight minerality on the finish. All the flavours you want from an oaky chards, but with a classy lightness.
