"Gamay Blanc" (Chardonnay)

2020
Chile
Maule

100% Chardonnay. "Gamay Blanc" is thrown around in the Jura as an alternative name for Chardonnay that appealed to him and his Beaujolais background. The fruit for this bottling comes from a two-hectare parcel in Maule. The vines are farmed organically, not irrigated and planted on sandy, decomposed granite soils. They are harvested by hand and the bunches directly and slowly pressed; the must is racked twice during its spontaneous fermentation to clarify it. The wine is aged in steel tank for 10 months before bottling with a very light, non-sterile filtration and without sulfur.
