Primary White Varieties

Chardonnay

A world favorite among white wines, this grape has proven its mettle in the cool climate areas such as Casablanca, San Antonio, and most recently Limarí, where it takes on a very attractive mineral edge. Smooth and well-rounded with moderate acidity and reminiscent of tropical fruits by nature, it takes kindly to a bit of oak aging and even barrel fermenting for additional complexity. Perfect for full-bodied fish and white meats, as well as corn-based dishes.
