Brilliant light yellow in color, Maycas Chardonnay offers great citrus aromas mixed with notes of toasted almond and hazelnut leading to a distinct minerality. Full-bodied, this wine offers great freshness and density. Citrus flavors echo on the palate and end with a crisp and persistent finish.
Enjoy with seafood and poultry dishes. Marries well with salmon, oysters, shrimp, and is excellent with rich sauces.
"The 2007 Chardonnay Maycas de Limari exhibits even more aromatic complexity, serious depth, and gobs of ripe, mineral-accented Chardonnay fruit."
The Wine Advocate
"Beyond the initial limestone impression lies a rich, velvety white with note of guava, peach and pineapple, though it never lets go of that severe saline acidity that marks white from Limari. Serve with seared scallops."
Wine & Spirits
"A very clean, pure style, offering nice cut to the yellow and green apple notes, with hints of fig and pear as well, all offset by a bright, minerally finish. Really opens nicely in the glass. Drink now through 2010."
Light & Crisp
This Chard got mixed reviews at Chilean wine tasting. Some felt it was too edgy and sharp. Others liked the crisp acidity. Not a soft Chard but good if you like a leaner style.
I liked the wind but my wife did not and she is the main chardonnay driinker
