It's rather mineral on the nose : limestone, crushed oyster shells and there is a hint of lemon and some whiter flower. The palate is very well balanced. There is a strong acid backbone, some sitckyness/thickness on the sides. Some nice lemony notes carry on throughout the whole palate end during a fresh and almost flowery finish. Fresh, fun, not fancy but very fine. — 5 months ago

I don’t know enough about Chile wine, but this bottle makes it clear I need to learn a lot more.
Beautiful Syrah with layers of dark fruit and spices. Good streak of acidity that keeps this wine in check. Hints of smoke on the finish. Made by John Duval, previously of Penfolds. — 3 months ago
I absolutely loved it - not a krug or Cristal but it you like finesse and elegance and structure versus over the top powerful champagne like I do then this will speak to you - some sweetness but really not made that way - big smile - I think it is it’s prime drinking window — 6 months ago
