SKU05259

Light golden color. Fresh and un-oaked taste profile, with lots of minerality and vivacity. Very pure and precise fruit expression of the Bio Bio Valley. Citrus and floral notes, surrounded by a touch of tropical fruit flavors. Long, intense and fresh finish.

Wine Enthusiast

Light and properly toasted on the nose, with pineapple, vanilla and yeasty bread notes. Quite fresh and bright across the tongue, with melon, apple and pear flavors that are sweet and ripe but not sugary. Honest and well done for the price.

Score: 89. —Michael Schachner, September 01, 2011.

Wine Advocate

The 2009 Chardonnay saw 30% of the wine fermented in French oak and 100% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation. It offers up notions of poached pear, melon, hazel nuts, stony minerals, and floral notes. This leads to a racy, vibrant, savory Chardonnay with excellent concentration and length. Greater complexity would have resulted in an outstanding rating. Even so, the wine is an excellent value meant for drinking over the next 2-3 years.

Score: 88. —Jay Miller, February 2012.

Wine Spectator

This well-defined white shows lots of bright green and yellow apple, chamomile and chartreuse notes, with a fresh finish. Drink now.

Score: 87. —James Molesworth, September 30, 2011.
