Santa Rita 120 Chardonnay, D.O. Aconcagua Valley-Chile, 2005
And they were 120 patriots, exhausted after the hard battle of Rancagua, fighting for Chile's independence from the Spanish Queen. Led by General O'Higgins, they reached the Santa Rita Estate. That fateful night of 1814, freedom found refuge in our cellars, the very same ones in which today, the wine cradled in your hands matured and developed structure and character. Coastal vineyards enjoy cool breezes and morning fog. Our 120 Chardonnay shows fruit, not oak, bright and refreshing, rice and ripe. The aromas include tropical fruits, green apples and a slight touch of orange peel. Round and balanced flavors, with citrus undertones, some mineral notes, butter and vanilla, it finishes with a fresh, lingering finish. Excellence is never the outcome of mere chance. Alc. 13.5% by vol.
