Winemaker's Notes:

Albamar pays homage to the Casablanca Valley's foggy sunrise ("alba" means sunrise) and the cooling breezes of the ocean ("mar" means ocean).

This wine shows excellent fresh fruit character and flavors of meyer lemon and crisp apple. It is bone dry and very food friendly.

About William Cole:

William Cole Vineyards lay deep within Chile's prestigious Casablanca Valley—often called "Chile’s Burgundy." This cool climate vineyard near the coast, which is comprised of over 129 contiguous hectares, provides a long, warm growing season with cool nights to develop excellent acidity. Owned by Bill Cole and his Chilean family, the winery specializes in cool climate varieties, and the wines are crisp, clean and complex. The winery makes two lines: Albamar and Columbine Reserve.
