L ’Atelier (the workshop) is the physical space where artisans and artists give free rein to their creativity and experimentation, working with great dedication on their works. Following this concept, the “L ‘Atelier” range is born, with a series of challenging, ecological and small-scale wines, which try to break preconceptions and to explore new oenological horizons.
APPELLATION: Colchagua Valley, Chile
TERROIR: Clay – silt of volcano-sedimentary origin.
VARIETY: 47.5% Sauvignon Blanc, 47.5% Chardonnay, 5% Viognier
VINE AGE: 20 years DENSITY: 20,000 vines/ha, trellised
HARVEST: The 2022 vintage was initially challenging given the rainfall deficits of the 2021-2022 season, which reached only 50% of a normal year. This scenario led us to develop a much more precise
and efficient irrigation management during the season, to which we added the sustainable practices of biodynamic viticulture. All of which allowed us to get through the season in a good way, obtaining excellent qualities. In terms of yields, the harvest was average and gives us a greater concentration and structure in our 2022 wines.
COLOR: Medium intensity yellow with a coppery rim, it presents a slight cloudiness due to the fact that it is an unfiltered wine where we look for its natural expression.
AROMA: Fruity notes reminiscent of quince, pear and apricot as well as an intense presence of mandarin and orange zest nuanced with aromas of beeswax and a pleasant floral bouquet.
FLAVOR: Complex on the palate, textured and with structure enhanced by the contribution of the skins, which provide chewy tannins, all supported by good acidity and volume.
FOOD MARRIAGE: Pairs well with fish, charcuterie and sweetbreads.
