    September 25, 2021 - 95pts. Drank with fscov, his bottle. This is probably the best Chardonnay of Chile these days, and sells for half of what one must pay for anything near this quality from another countries. My complete notes can be seen below. Excellent.

    August 18, 2021 - Best recent white wines of Chile - Descorchados 2020/2021: 95pts. The winner of this small tasting. Single blind I thought this was the Las Pizarras, and vice-versa. I could not at first believe the Amelia would be so good, because past vintages weren't. But it seems that its new vineyard at Limari Valley, called Quebrada Seca, imparted this wine with complexity and length it did not possess when it was sourced from the Casablanca Valley. Then again, Quebrada Seca is a really special vineyard, perhaps top three in the southern hemisphere for white wines.

    This Amelia is definitely new-world, though. On the nose, there were notes of peaches, white flowers, and spices - I could smell that all day long. On the palate it was more complex - here I got lots of tropical and subtropical fruit, with pineapple, lemon, lime, orange peel and kiwi notes. Some mint too. Excellent salinity and spiciness, long, and mouth-coating. A must have if you enjoy Chilean wines.

    July 11, 2021 - This is really an excellent wine. Quite powerful, but full of layers of flavor and nuance.

    Clear, light golden color. Relatively intense nose of pear, nectarine and straw, plus a little bread.

    Fresh acidity and lovely minerality throughout. Flavors of starfruit, ripe pears and nectarines, juicy coconut and just a hint of the straw. Fairly full body - obviously a decent amount of alcohol - and a nice long finish.
