With a bright pale yellow colour, our Caliterra Reserva Chardonnay has an intense nose that recalls tropical fruits such as pineapple and passion fruit, with well integrated soft, toasty notes given by the ageing in wood.

In mouth, this wine shows delicate sweet flavours that come from the oak along with a lively acidity that brings freshness to the wine, leading to a long, elegant finish.

The Chardonnay is the most versatile and friendly white grape variety. It can undergo any winemaking process. Reductive fermentation in stainless steel tanks, oxidative ageing, ageing in wood barrels for 6 months (50% of the wine), batonnage, and no malolactic fermentation this year, were some of the techniques used to successfully create a pleasant and drinkable wine characterized by a varied array of aromas. There is no a fixed process but a dynamic adaptation to the conditions of the harvest and the characteristics of the season. All this diversity enhances the complexity of this wine.

Producer Information

Caliterra was established in 1996 as a joint venture between the families of Robert Mondavi and Vina Errazuriz. In January 2004 Vina Errazuriz became the sole owners of Caliterra, at the heart of which is the impressive 1000ha Caliterra Estate.
The name Caliterra is taken from 'Calidad' Spanish for quality and 'Tierra' - land. The wine making philosophy of Caliterra is to produce environmentally friendly quality wines in the heart of the Colchagua Valley. The focus is around the 1000ha Caliterra estate in Colchagua where 288ha are currently under vine. Crucially a large proportion of this estate, and all new plantings, are on prime hillside sites resulting in high quality fruit and complex wines.
Over the past few years, Caliterra has pioneered a move to sustainable wine production with the country's leading consultant; the four pillars of this approach are sustainable viticulture, community commitment, environmental preservation and eco friendly packaging.
To establish Caliterra as a truly international brand, the focus has been on developing export markets as the basis for supporting growth. Today, Caliterra is sold in 50 countries on five continents.
