Given that this wine comes from the Cachapoal Valley, which is warm and normally puts out red wines, this is quite a success. The bouquet is vanilla-tinged and full of apple and nut oil, while the palate blends fresh pear and buttered toast flavors. It's smooth but still fairly fresh, with a richer, somewhat oily mouthfeel that is likely the result of its hotter terroir.
