Description

The Jackot from Bodegas Piedra is made with the northern Italian grape variety Friulano.  This delicate white has aromas of herb tinged fresh Lime on the nose and a gentle palate which has a lovely creamy texture with whiffs of oak on the finish.  The hand harvested fruit is fermented at a cool 14 – 17 degrees in a mixture of stainless steel (70%) and old oak barrels (30%).  Following fermentation the wine is aged on fine lees in concrete eggs for 3 months with weekly batonnage (stirring) to give the wine added texture, prior to a further 6 – 8 months in old oak prior to release.    


Bodegas Piedra Negra is situated in the foothills of the Andes, at an altitude of 1,100m, on well-drained and infertile pebbly soils, mixed with volcanic moraines. It a continental semi-desert environment characterised by light frosts and high levels of sunshine. Average annual rainfall is 200mm, essentially concentrated in summer. It experiences a wide night/day temperature range (10°C at night – 40°C during the day in summer).

The Flametree Chardonnay is beautifully balanced, displaying power and elegance in equal measure, plenty of vibrant citrus and stone fruit flavours and supportive oak courtesy of 9 months barrel ageing.  This is delicious now but will continue to develop for a couple of years.

Chenin Blanc

Produced from several vineyards with Silex (flint) soils, this delicious Vouvray is pale yellow with a very reserved nose. The palate is dominated by minerals, with citrus, apple and lemon peel fruit. Floral aromas balance out the minerality with some lovely balanced acidity coming through on the finish.
