Cornellana Chardonnay/Sauvignon Blanc

Cornellana Chardonnay/Sauvignon Blanc

Ref: A129516

A blend of the quite 'fat' fruity Chardonnay and the fresh grassy Sauvignon that brings out the best of both varieties. Dominated by tropical fruit flavours and crisp acidity. The pairing of the light, fresh aromatic Sauvignon Blanc with the richer Chardonnay is quite unusual, but here it works to tremendous effect, producing an exuberant, appealing wine which has lovely tropical fruit flavours, and is perfect unaccompanied, well-chilled, on a summer's day, or as a foil to coronation chicken, pork with prunes or any salad dish. (12.5%ABV - 2016)

Viña la Rosa was founded in Chile at the end of the 18th century by the Ossa family, who left Spain in search of new horizons. Don Gregorio Ossa travelled throuhout the country, looking for the most abundant land, and bought the Hacienda La Rosa, situated on the banks of the Cachapoal River..In 1824 Viña y Bodega La Rosa was founded, with vinestocks brought from France. In 1930, Don Recaredo Ossa Undurraga took over the administration of the haciendas, and is still in charge today. The Cornellana vineyard is situated in the valley of the same name, and enjoys exceptional exposure to the sun, which, together with its hill slopes and valley plains, means an optimal ripening of very healthy fruit, which reaches the cellars within an hour of harvesting, thus preserving all of its freshness and aroma.
