Winemaker's Notes

Pale straw in color, this wine offers inviting aromas of green apple, honeysuckle, and lemon with hints of vanilla and ginger. The flavors continue the crisp apple theme along with layers of lemon drop, grapefruit, anise, and hazelnuts. Medium-bodied with a creamy texture, it strikes an elegant balance between light oak and refreshing acidity.

The Antiguas Chardonnay is a highly compatible food companion, a delight with a range of appetizers and a perfect foil for richer seafood, pork, and poultry main courses.

"Many Chilean wineries have difficulty with Chardonnay due to problems integrating oak and fruit components. Cousino Macul seems to have mastered the production of value-priced Chardonnay. The outstanding 2006 Chardonnay Antiguas Reserva has no such problem. Featuring toasty pear, apple, and tropical fruit aromas and flavors, it has excellent depth and concentration, superior balance, and a lengthy, pure finish. It is a great value in well-made Chardonnay competing with wines twice the price. Kudos to Cousino-Macul for this significant upgrade to their portfolio."

The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....
