Composed and showing no overwrought oak or tropical fruit aromas that so often plague Chilean Chardonnay. A smooth operator, with toasty apple and mineral aromas leading to a ripe but cleansing palate and finish. This is like winemaker Marcelo Retamal's favorite child; with proper guidance it is growing better every year. Best overall Chardonnay to date from Limarí.
