Viña González Bastias

Naranjo Valle del Maule Moscatel Blend 2018

A delicious orange from 200 year old vines in Chile. Pink Moscatel, Torontel, and Pais that show as hazy flavors of orange peel and peaches. Very refreshing with a nice bit of tannin. Want some sweet and sour to pair with this. Went great with Billie Holiday. — 7 months ago

Cacique Maravilla

Gutiflower Pipeño Moscatel Blend 2015

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!
