Tasting Notes

Light yellow in colour. Tiny chains of bubbles called rosarios rise to form a persistent ring at the surface. The nose offers fruity aromas of grapefruit, apple, pineapple, and notes of toast. The fresh palate has good body, balance, and persistence.

Producer details

Voted by Wines of Chile as "Winery of the Year 2016", Emiliana is one of Chile's most exciting producers and pioneers in organic and biodynamic winemaking. Since 1998, this Chilean winery has been producing award-winning wines from almost 1,000 hectares of vineyards in prime sites including Casablanca, Maipo, Cachapoal, Colchagua and Bio Bio.Its spectacular biodynamic vineyard and winery at Los Robles is a model that attracts visiting viticulturalists and winemakers from across the world. Emiliana's innovative and natural-leaning wines are made with great care and attention and the results are inspiring.

In the vineyard

The Casablanca Valley is close to the Pacific Ocean and receives its maritime influence through coastal breezes that moderate temperature conditions. The terrain includes rolling hills and mountains that increase in height toward the east, where it meets with the Coastal Range. The soils are of alluvial origin, with a sandy loam textures. They are highly permeable, shallow, and poor in nutrients, which results in yields that are relatively low in comparison with other valleys in Chile. This plus cooler temperature conditions result in very slow ripening and fruit with tremendous flavor and aromas in varieties such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and others. The grapes were hand-picked into bins and transported immediately from the Casablanca Valley to our Palmeras winery in the Colchagua Valley.

In the winery

Upon arriving the grapes were refrigerated overnight and pressed the following day. The must was decanted to obtain clean juice for fermentation. Upon completion of the fermentation process, the new wine was left on its fine lees and stirred weekly (battonage) to enhance complexity. The wine then begins the process of developing its foam through a second fermentation using the traditional (champenoise) method in the bottle (1-2 months) and then the wine remains 6 months in contact with its lees. They are then disgorged, and the dosage is added.

Food Recommendations

This wine pairs well with dishes with mild cream sauces, raw and cooked shellfish, fresh summer salads, sushi, trout, and desserts made with red fruits and chocolate.
