Winemaker's Notes

Yellow in color with greenish hues and brilliant clarity. Intense, well-balanced nose of citrus fruit and mineral notes and papaya fruit aromas. Fresh on the palate with rich acidity and salty tones. Good level of fruit and pleasant finish. This wine is an excellent exponent of the development that this grape variety has had in the Limarí Valley.

Critical Acclaim

"A nicely ripe, yet very fresh white, with a taut star fruit frame to the core of green plum, Jonagold apple and heather notes. The long, racy finish has ample fruit in reserve. Drink now through 2012, 5,000 cases made."
