From the cool, northerly Elqui Valley, this wine tastes like a New Zealand knock-off. It shows bright green-fruit aromas, tropical notes, minerality and salinity on the nose, while the palate is wet, fresh and full of tingly apple, lime and tangerine flavors. A bit lean and scouring on thefinish, but likable.
