Cousino Macul Chardonnay
Classic Chilean Chard laced with citrus verve and cream
- Maipo Valley, Chile
Founded in 1856 Cousiño Macul is the only winery in Chile amongst those established in the 19th century that continues in the hands of the original founding family. The company remains 100% under family control and is today governed by the sixth generation direct descendants of its founder Matías Cousiño. The mission of Cousiño Macul is 'To produce world-class wines that are unmistakably Chilean carrying the distinctive character of the Maipo Valley'.
"When I visited Chile to see the winemaking there, I was astonished at the way in which the wineries were able to make French-style wines in a much more favourable climate. With a noticable ripe melon smell and plump flavour, this would go well with creamy chicken dishes or on its own."
