GEO Wines was formed 9 years ago with the intention of providing technical and commercial assistance to a select number of great wineries that have a growing potential. They focus on organic wines. Alvaro Espinoza is probably the most respected and innovative organic wine maker in Chile. In the past he has worked with Vinia Carmen and Bonterra and Fetzer in California. Along with Carlos Faundes, they have developed a deep knowledge of every Chilean grape. Producer GEO Wines Importer Montecastelli Selections
|Wine maker notes
|The grapes come from the Central Valley of Chile, well known for the great quality and concentration of its wines. The broad day-night temperature differentials, as well as the long, dry and sunny summers, allow the fruit to ripe slowly and express all its varietal character. The grapes were pressed and the juice transferred to temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks where the alcoholic fermentation took place with the help of selected yeasts. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was kept for 6 months in stainless steel tanks, allowing it to evolve and to develop its flavors and textures. No malolactic fermentation, no oak; we want to preserve all the freshness and fruitiness of this Chardonnay. With its bright straw-yellow color, this is a very fruity wine, with citric notes and soft hints of tropical fruits on the nose and on the palate. A well balanced wine with nice acidity and a lingering finish.
