Haras de Pirque Reserva Chardonnay 2017
Light yellow with green highlights this wine has expressive aromatics of fresh pineapple, white peaches. It is balanced and lively on the palate and the natural acidity of this wine enhances its fresh, citric style.
Haras de Pirque is the union of two passions in a unique place where thoroughbred breeding and fine wine elaboration come together. The estate today covers 600 hectares, gently ascending in its southern boundary by the foothills of a transverse cord of the Cordillera de los Andes, in Pirque, Chile. In 1992, this sector of foothills was planted with 120 hectares of vineyards planted mainly with Cabernet Sauvignon, Carménère, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, from which they create premium wines and excellence that today gives life to their exclusive and award-winning winery. In addition, 20 more hectares of Syrah and Cabernet Franc were added in 1998.
