Toasted, creamy, tangy.
While nothing is truly far from the ocean in Chile, this wine comes from a vineyard in Limari (a notably cool-climate region gaining in popularity) and is made from the notably fruity Mendoza Chardonnay clone.
Browned butter and grilled lemons carry the nose and are lifted by Gala apples and vanilla with layers of toasted hazelnut, coriander seed, and bay leaf. The palate is supple and creamy with impressive intensity. Tropical fruit is carved through the flavour profile, along with tangy lemon and toasted nuts on the finish. Excellent posture, on-point acidity and notable length.
Pairs great with Gone Crackers Canadian Chedder & Chive
