Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre Chardonnay 2016

Atalayas Vineyard is nested in the heart of the Chilean Costal Cordillera, only 22 km away from the Pacific Ocean. Its rolling hills and steep exposures are the source of an array of mesoclimates that allow us to produce different lots, each with a unique personality that makes up the final blend. Casablanca is strongly influenced by the sea, which is cold on these latitudes because of the Humboldt Current coming from Antarctica. Under this cold influence, the lower layer of the atmosphere is cooled down, which provokes numerous low clouds and fog penetrating the valley in the mornings. Mid-days and afternoons are warm and sunny in spring and summer, but the sea breezes starts blowing at the end of afternoon, lowering the temperature to 9°C or 10°C. This maritime influence, which also results in cool nights, gives the valley an exceptionally long growing season and a slow ripening process. This is the key to preserve the natural acidity of the grapes and allow an intense aromatic expression in the wine.
