    August 18, 2021 - Best recent white wines of Chile - Descorchados 2020/2021: 93pts. I was able to recognize this single blind without a problem. On its own this would have been very nice, but it took third place because its competition was so good.

    Malleco is the southernmost terroir of the three wines of this tasting - it's more than 600 km south of Santiago. Here the weather is cold not due to maritime influence, but because it it so farther south. And there is no doubt this is a cool-climate chard, although the fruit seems to be more mature than usual in this bottle.

    I have tasted the 2013 version of this wine, and this one is a bit more tropical - I got notes of peach syrup, honey, caramel and "fleur de sel" (salt flower), with some toffle on the nose. Creamy, but with good freshness and balance - this is really nice to drink. Could use a longer finish, but it is good enough. I could drink this all night long.
