Made by Vinas Alto Roble, this bright Chardonnay is sourced from vineyard sites in Chile's Central Valley region, notably the Curico Valley. It has lovely fresh pineapple fruit on the nose with a balanced and fruity palate, layered with tropical fruit notes.

Buy this if...you love vibrant, fruity Chardonnay.

Outstanding - lived up to and beyond its description. As a chardonnay buff my wife said it was as good as any, EVER! Hoppy

The Producer

Vinas Alto Roble (meaning tall oak) call the beautiful town of Yerbas Buenas in the Maule Valley home, although vineyard sites are scattered the length and breadth of the Central Valley area in the Colchagua, Curico and Maule production areas. Timing proved right for founders Francisco Achurra and Patricio Larrain who bought a small Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in the area in 1993. Growing recognition for Chilean wines led them to invest in neighbouring vineyards, with a gradual move towards the cooler, higher altitude sites.

The Winemaker

Winemaker Eloisa Uribe qualified from Chile’s Universidad Catolica specializing in oenology. After the ubiquitous winemaking experience gained in both Sonoma and Bordeaux, Eloisa returned to work with Alto Roble in 2002. She now oversees the winemaking team and all aspects of the process, including the creation of market specific wines such as our Rio Mataquito duo.

The Region

The Rio Mataquito wines hail from the Curico Valley, situated towards the south of the Central Valley region where myriad grape varieties enjoy this sheltered, sunny climate with hot summers and cold winters. Altitude plays an important part in the freshness of the wines and and sea breezes and low night temperatures allow flavours in the grapes to develop.

Spicy Chicken Korma

An aromatic, creamy curry needs a wine with good acidity to prevent the flavours from becoming too cloying. Try light, smooth whites with tropical notes to add a touch of vibrancy to the rich sauce. New world Chardonnay if a fine match.

Epoisses Poulet

This is surely a bucket-list recipe for any cheese lover out there - the unctuous creamy, cheesy sauce is crying out for a glass of rich, mineral Chardonnay such as the Chilean Rio Mataquito Chardonnay.

Chicken Caesar Salad

A classic Caesar salad with rich dressing needs nothing but a glass of bright, fruity white - head to New World Sauvignons or Chardonnays for the best pairing.
