Winemaker Notes

Arboleda Chardonnay is bright and beautiful light yellow in color and very perfumed on the nose, with an exuberant side showing pronounced notes of tropical fruits such as papayas, pineapple, and a light touch of melon, along with a more complex and subtle side that developed in the barrel and recalling hazelnut, almonds, and a touch of toast. The palate is creamy and long with a delicious acidity that lends freshness and tension. This is a complex wine brimming with youthfulness and good structure leading to a long finish, all of which promise excellent longevity in the bottle.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Chardonnay is sourced from the coastal part of Aconcagua, from their estate vineyards. The nose has some aromas of nuts, hay and straw over a core of white fruit. The palate is very dry, nothing sweet or tropical to be found here; the Arboleda wines are sourced from plots closer to the sea in search of mineral, austere wines, always bone dry and sometimes strict. This is a very good Chardonnay for food.

Arboleda Winery Image

Arboleda wines were born in 1999 as part of the shared dream that inspired Robert Mondavi and Eduardo Chadwick to realize the potential of Chile as a world class producer of fine wines. The name "Arboleda" in Spanish means "grove of trees" and is a tribute to the native Chilean trees that have been preserved within the vineyards that produce the Arboleda grapes. The source of the Arboleda grapes comes from two self contained estates within the valley. A stunning hillside property some 40kms inland was acquired and planted in 2000 with a selection of red grape varieties. This property was named "Las Vertientes" due to its natural springs of water. Arboleda red wines aim for complete ripeness, full bodied with high concentration of fruit, complexity and balance.

Arboleda white wines aim to be fresh, crispy with high acidity and intense aromatics. Therefore the vineyards were planted during 2005 in the proximity to the sea, only 14 kms from the Pacific Ocean in a property called "Chilhue", the place of sea gulls in native Mapuche indian language.

A region that has become synonymous with some of the best whites of Chile, the Casablanca Valley is full of dozens of bodegas who either grow fruit here or come from outside to source from local growers for their own white wine programs. The valley runs from east to west, which means that its westernmost vineyards receive the most cooling influence from the reliable afternoon sea breezes. The soils also tend to be heavier in clay in the west, whereas the eastern end of the valley is warmer and its soils are predominantly granitic. Sauvignon blanc thrives here, Chardonnay does well and Pinot noir is not uncommon.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
