Viña Echeverria is a family-run estate winery, owned and managed by the
Echeverria family. Established in 1930, but with an agricultural heritage going back
to the 1700s, Viña Echeverria is as much today, as always, driven by a shared
passion for winemaking and an uncompromising search for excellence. Viña
Echeverria combines nearly a century of viticulture and winemaking experience with
a modern state-of-the-art winery, to produce a range of over 20 quality wines from
nine different grape varieties. It has recently been awarded its Sustainable Winery
status by Wines of Chile, as well as its ISO9000 certification.
Viña Echeverria´s vineyards and winery are located in the Curico Valley, Chile's wine
heartland. Situated on the 35th parallel south, between the towering Andes
mountains and the cool Pacific Ocean, this privileged viticultural zone sits at 243
metres above sea-level. With its cold nights and warm dry days, intense sunlight and
long growing season, it is ideally suited to produce healthy vines and grapes. The
cooling influence of the oceanic breeze, allows the grapes to achieve outstanding
fruit aromas and exceptional colour concentration. The rows are planted in an eastwesterly
direction, to maximise the sun's exposure. Working with a model of micro
viticulture, each plot, of no more than half a hectare, is identified according to its
terroir and microclimate and planted accordingly. Grapes are subjected to specific
pruning, irrigation, canopy management and harvesting, which results in grapes of
optimum quality and flavour. The soil is loam & clay with a well-drained gravelly
The grapes were destemmed and chilled to 8°C followed by a direct pneumatic
pressing. A static sedimentation took place at 8 to 10°C for 24 to 48 hours. 30% of the
blend then underwent a cold maceration for 18 hours to enhance the fruit flavours.
The must was fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at controlled
temperatures of between 14 to 18°C for 25 days. The wine was matured for six weeks
in steel tanks, with continuous stirring of the fine lees, imparting a creamy texture to
the final wine. Blended with 2% Viognier following the fermentation, the wine was
stored in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, prior to bottling.
Fresh and juicy, this delicate Chardonnay expresses aromas of pineapples, melon
and peach combined with fresh citrus and vanilla notes. The palate is silky and
vibrant with a long and mouthwatering finish.
