Intense golden yellow. Fresh floral and tropical fruit aromas mingle with mineral and citrus accents. Pineapple, nectarine, melon and banana resonate in this elegant Chardonnay with freshness and a bright finish.
Chile's Casablanca Valley is surrounded by coastal mountain ranges creatinga diversity of unique microclimates and terroir. Its close proximity to the Pacific Ocean provides an exceptionally long growing season for intensity of fruit flavors.
"Bright green-gold hue. Crisp scents of slate, mineral and lemon peel. Creamy acidity and juicy flavors of pear and golden pineapple. Impressions of vanilla, oak and buttered toast in the pear-driven close."

"Veramonte is one of the early proponents of Casablanca, and this wine sings a pretty tune. The bouquet offers apple, melon, pear and a kiss of solid oak, while the palate shows vanilla along with soft pear and apple flavors. Balanced and a touch sweet, but not too oaky or resiny."
This is our everyday drinking white. My husband's been to the vineyard and winery in Chile to meet the family. It's a great value, and the screw top on the 2006 is a nice addition, since we always keep a bottle in the frig.
Nice value for the price. MUCH better than the savignon blanc which was too bitter-graperuity.
Always a great house wine. Very good for the price. Tastes a lot more expensive.
