Like any good coastal Chilean SB, this crackles with minerality, grassy notes and tight citrus aromas. The palate has zest and acidity, while core flavors of arugula, jalapeño, nettle and green fruits shout “cool climate.” Because 2012 was very hot by Chilean standards, the finish is a bit flatter and fuller than in past vintages.
