Leyda Valley is a famous wine grape-growing region in Chile known for its cool climate that contributes to the uniqueness of Leyda Valley wine. The grapes grown in this region are influenced by the Humboldt Current that runs along the coast and the breeze from the Pacific Ocean. This moderates the temperature, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly while retaining their acidity.
To make Leyda Valley wine, the grapes are harvested by hand, crushed, and fermented in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures. Some may undergo malolactic fermentation, giving the wine a smoother, creamier texture.
Expect fresh and bright flavors, lively acidity, and minerality with citrus and tropical fruit notes. The cool climate also results in thicker grape skins, more tannins, and a more robust wine. Leyda Valley wine is versatile and pairs well with seafood and grilled white meats. It is a dry wine that should be served chilled.
The alcohol content of Leyda Valley wine ranges from 12% to 14% ABV. You can find quality Leyda Valley wines on the Vi.Wine marketplace that offers a wide variety of exceptional producers. Enjoy the finest wine from Chile with just a few clicks and have it delivered to your doorstep.
