Many different styles can be chosen when making Chardonnay, partly depending on soil and climate. The planting of the grapes in the cool Casablanca Valley gives this wine, just like the Sauvignon from Carmen, a fresh and aromatic character, in which the fruit is paramount. The grapes are hand-picked at different harvest times. In this way, the wine gets more complexity, due to the diverse character of the harvested fruit. The grapes picked earlier have more acidity and nervousness, the grapes harvested later provide depth and strength. Short and vigorous exposure to a lot of acid (hyperoxidation) results in less bitterness and a more creamy character. 60% of the wine was fermented in used French oak barrels and 40% was shown only stainless steel, again to preserve freshness, in addition to a creamy and powerful character. Eight months of aging on the fine lie (sur lie) resulted in a powerful and aromatic glass of Chardonnay.

In the glass, the 1850 Chardonnay Reserva has a beautiful straw yellow color. In the nose, the wine has a nice subdued scent, almonds and hazelnuts, pear and a pleasant hint of citrus fruit, smoky, grapefruit. In the mouth it has a full and powerful taste, elegant, with a fresh acidity, apple, citrus, peach, soft and buttery, nice ripe style.

Delicious with pasta with a vegetable sauce, creamy cheeses, sea bass with tapenade, razor clams.
