Triangle Wines is a collaboration of De Martino, a leading producer in Chile making terroir-driven wines from several regions, and some UK wine professionals.
In the northern Limari valley, which is about 400km north of Santiago, where the combination of cool coastal climate and calcareous soils made up from red clay over limestone, create the perfect recipe for a lean and pure Chardonnay like Calco.
Calco Chardonnay was aged in French oak barriques for 12 months.
'This has a pale lemon yellow colour with green tinches. On the nose it is pure, and restrained with subtle lees/ yeast notes along with lemon-skin, yellow apple and just ripe peach; medium- bodied on the palate, citrus and floral aromas enhance the light lees structure. This is zesty & pure. Excellent for summer drinking, and very good value too.' Anja Breit, Philglas & Swiggot
