Product Notes

Chakana Nuna Vineyard White Blend is a complex and aromatic wine made from a combination of three grape varietals: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Viognier. This blend offers a unique and harmonious taste that is both fruity and floral. The aromas of tropical fruits, white peach, jasmine, and lemon zest excite the senses and initiate an experience that is oh so satisfying. This wine is aged in French oak barrels for 10 months before being bottled, allowing it to develop a subtle complexity that balances the fruitiness of the wine. With its bright acidity and refreshing finish, Chakana Nuna Vineyard White Blend is a perfect choice for sipping on a warm summer evening.

Tasting Notes

Always unwooded, Gabriel Bloise’s organic cuvée of mostly Sauvignon Blanc with Chardonnay and a splash of Viognier is supple and attractive, with notes of white flowers, honey and grapefruit

About the Winery

Chakana

Located in Agrelo, Lujan de Cuyo in the Mendoza region of Argentina, Chakana Wine Estate is a family-owned winery that was established in 2002. The Chakana vineyards stretch across 80 hectares, where organic and biodynamic viticultural practices take place to date. Some of the grapes for Chakana wines are also grown in the Altamira region of Uco Valley (also known as Ayni) and Los Cedros.

In a bid to be true to the soils of the region, the family wanted to transform its winemaking practices. It started introducing many organic and biodynamic techniques in the vineyards. By 2016, the family-owned winery had got the relevant certifications to practice as an organic and biodynamic winery.

In most Argentinian buildings that stretch from the Quito to the Mendoza, you can find a unique symbol – the square-shaped cross. This cross is known as the Chakana in the local dialect. Over the years, the Chakana became to be known as a powerful word with important spiritual elements that denote the three features of life – soil, air and water. Therefore, this estate was labeled Chakana to show its respect to the land and the terroirs of the Andes regions.

Minimal intervention is the mantra followed at the wineries of Chakana. Fermentation happens with the help of natural yeast, and the use of sulphur dioxide and other additives have kept as minimal as possible. Porous materials like cement barrels are used for ageing, so that the juice represents the true elegance and character of the fruit.

Finca Nuna in Agrelo – Stretches across 150 hectares, out of which 120 hectares are under the vine; Malbec is the main varietal planted here; however, you can also see small parcels of other varietals like Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat. Viiognier and more. 

Finca Ayni in Uco Valley – Stretches across 36 hectares out of which 26 hectares are under the vine. Malbec is planted on 20, Chardonnay on 4 and Pinot Noir on 2 hectares.
