The Estate: Altaria Chardonnay is a popular white wine known for its approachable style and versatility. It's often enjoyed by both casual wine drinkers and those who appreciate the nuances of well-made Chardonnay. Altaria is a brand that produces wines aimed at offering good value and approachable flavors, making them accessible to a wide audience. Altaria wines are produced in countries like Chile, Argentina, and parts of Europe, such as Spain or Italy. This wine is from Chile. Located within the Central Valley, Curicó is particularly distinguished for its varied microclimates and soil types, making it ideal for growing diverse grape varieties. It benefits from warm days and cool nights, which help in retaining acidity and developing complex flavors in the grapes.

Fermented happened in stainless steel tanks to preserve fresh fruit flavors, with a full malolactic fermentation to add creaminess. Short ageing in oak barrels added more complexity (like vanilla and buttery notes).

 

Suggested food and wine pairing: Great with grilled fish, shrimp, and scallops; chicken dishes (with creamy sauces), creamy pastas, risotto, salads; soft cheeses (Brie or Camembert).
