I managed to shock an entire panel of very classical sommeliers with this Chilean oddity. A exuberantly aromatic, super cloudy, unfiltered, slightly fizzy blend of Muscat de Alexandria, Torontel and "Corinto" (local name for Chasselas). Like it or not winemaker Manuel Moraga (from a veritable wine dynasty) is delivering the traditional/real/old style Chileans. This is the type of wine that my grandfather, renowned local drunk, had with friends and family, particularly during our national holidays in September when the country goes into a drunken stupor. Forget Carmenères, Almavivas and Chadwicks I'm sorry. If you really want to go local while in Chile you got to try Itata, Yumbel, Guarilihue. That's where you'll find our true soul. BTW I got this one in NYC while shopping around Union Sq, how's that for contradiction!

Aged two years. Soft tannins. Hot Saturday. Thick steaks. Good friends. Belly laughs. 😊 — 2 years ago
Since I’m originally a European, for some unknown reason, I always romanticized about the Kennedy dynasty. With the superb CNN series and this Time reprint, I better understand his role in shaping US and world history. The world needs more people like JFK and Bobby - god bless this United States of America 🇺🇸 — 3 years ago
A wine even a preacher's wife could love. This is not a dry rose by any means. It's got sugar and it makes no bones about being simply a well made version of the mid-afternoon, let's watch some Dynasty, White Zin classics. Not for the stuck up or serious of heart. — 6 years ago
