Developed quite nicely over the last couple years.
Still lots of primary fruit left. Smells of backed apples and some citrus fruits besides its buttery and creamy base. On the palate it shows great structure and minerality and its quite long. An amazing chardonnay which could surprise in a tasting against way more expensive ones.
We ate pasta with a salmon cream sauce with it, which worked quite well. My wife guessed it was a chard from Burgundy. I could agree, but it would be a better one from this region.
This is a "New World" Chardonnay with a great unique character. It is not too buttery, fat or woody. It hasn't too much alcohol, althogh half a percentage (13,5 %) could have been better. After a while it developed a very pleasant taste of pears, slight banana, fresh lemon and a gentle note of vanilla. Some well fitting vegetable tastes could be spotted as well. The fracrance is very fresh and dominanted by lemon aromas. I never had such a good Chilean Chardonnay before. It is nowhere near to a boring, brutal and muscular Chardonnay you encounter at too many occasions.
