Three years running, this wine has been getting better. It shows textbook Elqui aromas of jalapeno peppers and gooseberry, while the flavors are a little tropical due to pineapple notes. On the back end it reverts toward minerally green fruit, jalapeno and white pepper dust. Good wine; not vegetal.
