Beginning with the 2009 vintage, we decided to showcase the unique features of our Chardonnay vineyard with its own bottling and by naming it “Estate”.

Displaying a bright golden color with a light green hue, the 2009 Chardonnay Estate maintains its original freshness. A light haziness provides proof of our non-manipulative approach, guaranteeing all-natural wine quality. The wine shows great intensity and concentration with a lingering finish is reminiscent of the bouquet's strong minerality, a tribute to the Terroir's volcanic soil. Enjoy!
