Wine Review: This light gold colored Chardonnay from Chile is a spectacular value. It opens with pineapple and pear like bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, smooth and nicely coats your mouth. The flavor profile is a lemon verbena, pear and gentle oak blend with hints of pineapple, almonds, and toasted coconut. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and drift away nicely. This is a very complex Chardonnay for its price point. It way over-delivers. I would pair it with lobster with drawn butter this summer. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This small production wine is an intense and elegant expression of Chardonnay from granitic soils from the coastal mountain range in Chile. A powerful mineral character defines the nose while mixing gentle notes of butterscotch; the mouthfeel has a lush and rich texture with a very long finish.

Organic status: not organic
