Toasty and barrel-rich up front, with lemon, baked apple and good integration of aromas. The feel is complete, friendly and round, with apple and sweet stone fruit flavors. Oak is always present, but so is an unmistakeable ripe quality. Very good for Chilean Chardonnay despite being oaky and sweet.
