100% Chardonnay from estate vineyards in the Leyda Valley. The grapes were harvested by hand on four different occasions between March 26th and April 10th. The harvest was divided over a number of days due to the variable exposure of the parcels and in order to foster different components and flavors for the final blend. The grapes were whole-cluster pressed at low pressure, and the juice was then chilled down to 46º F and clarified up to 120-130 NTU. Alcoholic fermentation was carried out entirely in stainless steel tanks in order to obtain a fresh wine. Neutral yeasts were used to highlight the purity of this grape variety. Fermentation was carried out at low temperatures (55-60°F) for 18 days. The wine was aged on its lees for six months with a batonnage regime in order to enhance roundness and volume on the palate.

Planted on rolling hills with low-nutrient, loamy-clay soils, the Leyda vineyards are ideal for producing small yields of concentrated grapes. Within the vineyard, the architecture, density and irrigation levels are constantly adjusted to attain the perfect ripening conditions for each variety. The winery uses the most modern equipment for wine production, including pneumatic presses, gentle pumps and a temperature interchange system for both grapes and must. The cellar has 56 stainless steel tanks of varying capacities, each with temperature control systems. This diversity allows Leyda to separate different lots, and then classify the various components for final blending. The winery uses 70% French and 30% American oak barrels, from the world”s most respected coopers and works with different oak styles to obtain more complexity and elegance in its wines. Viviana Navarrete is the exceptionally talented winemaker behind Leyda and part of the new generation of winemakers. She graduated at the top of her class with a degree in oenology from Pontifica Unversidad Catolica de Chile. Viviana”s vision is to harness the potential of the vineyards in Leyda Valley to demonstrate the ability of this area to produce extraordinary and expressive cool-climate wines.

Pioneers in cool, coastal viticulture, Leyda is amongst the most awarded wineries in Chile, and is internationally recognized for their Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. Also dedicated to using the latest technology to analyze every detail of the region, their ongoing research ensures that each variety performs to its maximum potential.
