Dear friends

I'm so happy to give you this news! From this week, Qu Chardonnay 2016 is going live!!
Many thanks to the Angels for helping make this possible.

I would like to share some interesting facts about this wine:

*The 2016 season had temperatures lower than a normal year and very early rains, so we needed to overtake the harvest approximately 2 weeks, obtaining a very fruity and fresh wine with good acidity and moderate alcohol level.

*The harvest was made in March 20th, handpicking very early in the morning; this help to keep a low temperature of grapes, and mantain its natural flavors for the fermentation.

*Vinification is carried out in stainless steel tanks. All process is developed at low temperatures (12 to 16°C). Once fermentation is started, 50% of the juice is moved to oak barrels to complete the process and kept with their lees for 8 months until the final blend. This brings to the wine a greater smoothness in mouth and differents flavors, like vanilla and caramel.

I really hope you enjoy this new vintage and let me know your comments about the wine!
