Community Tasting Note

  • br_winelover Likes this wine: 94 points

    August 18, 2021 - Best recent white wines of Chile - Descorchados 2020/2021: 94-95pts. Bottle #414. This Chardonnay comes from a vineyard close to Pacific Ocean composed of slate, which imparts it with excellent minerality and lift. It was the second best wine of this tasting, because the Amelia was even more complex.

    But this is definitely no slouch - actually, it seems much akin to a "old-world Chardonnay" than the Amelia, which is definitely "new-world" in style. This Las Pizarras would easily fit in a flight of Chablis, for example, while the Amelia has the profile of a great California Chardonnay. Here we have tons of citrus notes like Sicilian lemon and lime, complemented by green pineapple, green apple, and unripe passion fruit. It is light on its feet, long, and refreshing - a true image of its terroir. Beautiful stuff, with or without food. Really glad I have more.
