How to say it

Chilkas Reserva Seerah

Production information

Producer: Chilcas

Individual vineyards, ecological wine practices (including some vineyards certified as organic) and a new winemaker all add up to an incredibly exciting portfolio ranging from Reserva upwards. Chilcas’ approach is to nurture individual parcels and vineyards to create wines with individual character and personality. The wines are quite different from the vast swathes of generic, branded wines to come out of Chile at similar price points.

Production note

The grapes are hand-picked and taken carefully to the winery where they were inspected on a sorting table then gently de-stemmed to prevent the berries from breaking. A 3 day pre-fermentation maceration takes place before 100% of the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks. During fermentation, 4 to 6 pumpovers to move 50% to 100% of the volume, as determined by enological tasting. 70% of the wine is aged for 8–10 months in oak barrels.
