TASTING NOTE 

The Eagle of Chile is a bird of prey that flies over mountain skies, mainly in the central valley of Chile. Our Colchagua, Curicó and Maule vineyards are the perfect home for our Eagles, naturally maintaining the ecosystem of the vineyards. VERDI AGUILA Chardonnay is a truly premium white wine, from a single vineyard located in the Maule Valley, on the Yerbas Buenas estate. This Chardonnay was harvested by hand and carefully vinified and then aged in American and French oak barrels. With a golden yellow color with golden reflections, its notes of tropical fruits such as pineapple, banana and mango, almond flowers and vanilla stand out. On the palate it is of a pronounced volume, very pleasant, with a vibrant acidity that is perfectly balanced with the creamy texture and a long finish of great exuberance.

The Maule Valley

he largest winemaking region in Chile is also one of the most diverse in terms of geography and climate, encompassing the Andes to the east, flat and sunny valleys across the central corridor, and the coastal hills to the west, which allow both red and white varieties to find an optimal soil where to be planted. With a Mediterranean Climate and largely influenced by the cold winds of the Andes at night, the daily temperature variation is enlarged, and the time of exposure to very high temperatures is reduces, which helps the fruit to ripen slowly and in good conditions. Unlike many other wine harvesting regions in Chile, the Maule Valley suffers no influence from the sea in its temperature, yet still maintains a favourable daily temperature differential. These climate conditions grant a favourable intensity in aroma to the Carménère, full of spices and black pepper. In the same manner, the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and some white grapes also prosper in excellent conditions.
