"Best White Wine of Show" easily. There were not many white wines at the Great Wines of the Andes tasting and this one I went back to twice. Delicious rich full body with lots of pistachios and tropical notes with bright acidity.

Complex mineral flavors. Very smooth. A very different Chardonnay then I'm used to. Liked it very much

Really different than chards I know to. France or California. Slight buttery mineral notes and a bit effervescent. Loving the complexity.

This is a straw-colored wine with a nice tropical nose showing a hint of lime. Its palate is quite tasty, with lots of citrus minerality and just a shade of oak. Meyer lemon note is beautiful. The acidity is excellent and the mouthfeel is full. A lengthy finish makes the pleasure last.

Bright, fresh, yet concentrated and tropical. Hazelnut, matchstick, apricot, vanilla, bitterness of oak and limezest in the back. Relatively high acidic mouthfeel for a NW chardo, which could be a good thing, but seems slightly artificial and out of place here.
Seems a tad forward and evolved.
“The Batard-Montrachet of Chile?”
Ehhhh, no.., pretty darn good, but not excellent.

Great! Especially for price. Typical chard, not done all CA style.
