A full bodied white with a gorgeous aroma of peach, vanilla and toasty walnut notes with lots of creamy mouthfeel and ripe stone fruit flavour.

Viña Quintay belongs to a group of people who love Casablanca and its wines. Felipe Aldunate, Hernán Gómez, Pablo Gómez, Edmundo Eluchans, Jaime Charles, Felipe Larraín, Felipe Morandé, and the Rencoret family share the common objective of taking the best advantage of Chile’s cool-climate varieties and the wines they produce. With a focus on making fine wines in the Premium and Super Premium categories, they have created a different kind of enological project with limited production.

Settled in the heart of Casablanca Valley, Quintay winery has succeeded in enhancing the popularity of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir consumption worldwide by creating values that far exceed the quality to price ratio. A mirror image of the central coast of California, Chile has also embarked on the opportunity to produce cool climate Syrah and Chardonnay with fruit forward complexity and balanced acidity. Casablanca represents an ideal ground for growing all of these varietals with temperatures rarely exceeding 77 degrees Fahrenheit. The Humboldt Current in the Pacific creates a cooling effect in the evenings from the close proximity to the sea. Intense luminosity during the day creates a conducive environment for polyphenolic maturity. The rolling fog helps create a longer and slower ripening of the vines.

Various microclimates exist within the region that Quintay uses in their Casablanca expressions. Lo Orosco represents the coolest in the region creating crisp acidic Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Lo Ovalle acts in a more central and warm location perfect for Chardonnay. The Tapihue area with higher elevation adds an intense luminosity with more citrus versions of the Sauvignon Blanc varietal. Lastly, the coastal Las Dichas region lends to the most complex Sauvignon Blancs. Winemaker Paula Cárdenas pulls from each of these vineyard sites to create the optimal balance in each wine. All are initially vinified separately before creating the final blend. In recent years, Quintay has extended the success of the brand to the warmer regions of Maipo and Rapel for the production of Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere.

Really good with macaroni cheese or white meats.
