Fairly sweet on the nose, with melony aromas. That melony, warm quality translates to the palate, where honeydew flavors encounter a driving pithy bitterness that's not uncommon to Chilean Chardonnay. Finishes with candied vanilla flavors and plumpness. Seems a little big and boisterous given what it offers.
