About This Wine

Patagonia soils are all, in some way influenced by water. In this case, an old riverbed. The Cincuenta y Cinco vineyard lies on a bed of pebbles, which was planted in 1955. Low temperatures and whole cluster ferments accentuate a distinct floral aspect. Cincuenta y Cinco was matured for 11 months, 1/2 in concrete tanks and 1/2 in a mixture of seasoned French barriques. This vineyard is organic and biodynamic.

Winemaker Piero Rochetta, grandson of famed Super Tuscan 'Sassicaia' producer, jumped at the chance to create Bodegas Charcra in far away Patagonia. This region is known for its iron rich, red clay soils and like the rest of Patagonia, blessed with a semi arid cool climate.

Chacra has quickly become internationally recognised as South America's Pinnacle of Burgundian varieties. This region is still young in terms of recognition yet Piero's involvement since 2004 has catapulted this region to the world stage. Blessed with enviable old vine, ungrafted vineyards (something even Burgundy can rarely claim) plus a truly unique climate make Chardonnay and Pinot Noir through the Patagonian lens unforgettable. If you regularly hunt down By Farr or Felton Road, Chacra has a place in your cellar. 

‘Piero strives to make wines that are transparent, pure, delicate, and floral with a strong minerality.'
