It was established in 2004 by Piero Incisa della Rocchetta, whose grandfather was responsible for the iconic Italian wine Sassicaia. Chacra has three vineyards of very old Pinot Noir vines, and makes a range of premium Pinot Noir wines in Patagonia. Incisa was initially inspired to create an estate in the Rio Negro Valley in 2001 after a chance blind tasting of a Pinot Noir from the region. He bought a vineyard with vines that had been planted as far back as 1932, and were on their original root systems. Bodega Chacra has since added two more old-vine Pinot Noir vineyards to its holdings – the first planted in 1955 and the second in 1967. The bodega is named for a farming method used in Patagonia – \"chacra\" is the local word for a square farm divided into four equal squares by canals. This system uses snow melt from the Andes for irrigation, making the Patagonian desert fertile. Poplar trees have been planted around the vineyards to shelter the vines from wind, which can be an issue in the area. The combination of aridity, altitude, low annual rainfall and clean air all help to keep phylloxera and other vine diseases at bay, while providing a good terroir for the production of high quality wine. Grapes are harvested by hand, and are fermented using natural yeasts. The wines are aged in French oak, around 20 percent of which is new. The wine is left on its lees in the barrel for 12 months and bottled without fining or filtration. Bodega Chacra makes three single-vineyard Pinot Noirs: Trienta y Dos from the 1932 vineyard; Cincuenta y Cinco from the 1955 vineyard; and Sesanta y Sete from the 1967 vineyard. It also makes a standard Pinot Noir, Barda, from grapes not used in the singe-vineyard wines and from younger vines in the original 1932 vineyard. Bodega Chacra also makes a Merlot called Mainqué, and a rosé made from Pinot Noir.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-04-03T16:31:37-04:00","created_at":"2023-03-27T06:48:30-04:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_Argentina","NK2603","Other_Wine","Producer_Bodega Chacra","Region_Patagonia","Source_Hedonism0323","Type_White Wine","Varietal_Chardonnay"],"price":37999,"price_min":37999,"price_max":37999,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42871068065930,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2021 | Bodega Chacra | Mainque Chardonnay","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":37999,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/24_77f2572f-5dbd-4a21-b858-627dcd8427ba.jpg?v=1679914139"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/24_77f2572f-5dbd-4a21-b858-627dcd8427ba.jpg?v=1679914139","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2021 | Bodega Chacra | Mainque Chardonnay at CaskCartel.com","id":24477344727178,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.6,"height":1000,"width":600,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/24_77f2572f-5dbd-4a21-b858-627dcd8427ba.jpg?v=1679914139"},"aspect_ratio":0.6,"height":1000,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/24_77f2572f-5dbd-4a21-b858-627dcd8427ba.jpg?v=1679914139","width":600}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eWhite Wine: 2021 | Bodega Chacra | Mainque Chardonnay\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThis has a complex yet refined nose of sliced apples, peach pits, smoked almonds, wet stones, chalk and white pepper.
