Vina Marty Estate Chardonnay
About the Vintage: It will be remembered as warmer than average, with excellent sanitary conditions. It has helped to obtain mature red and white wines, with great potential and complexity. Harvest in our vineyards with white varieties was completed in the first days of April, while the last red variety were harvested in the beginning of May. Yield per hectare of grapes produced during this vintage was lower than than average in all valleys where Viña Marty is. This has reduced size of the berries and clusters. This vintage will create more concentrated wines with stronger character.
