Viña La Rosa 2006 La Capitana Barrel Reserve Chardonnay (Cachapoal Valley)

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. Michael Schachner
