Winemaker Notes

Notes of sweet papayas, fresh peaches and soft vanilla appear in this Chardonnay from Limari. It demonstrates a citric acidity reminiscent of colder climates and a volume in the mouth that reminds one of sunny days in the north of Chile. In the mouth it is soft and the mineral flavors come through, along with fresh fruit flavors well-integrated with the oak.

Critical Acclaim

WS 90
Wine Spectator

Ripe and fleshy, but pure and focused, with gorgeous Jonagold apple, quince, chamomile and sweetened butter notes that stay lively on the full-bodied finish. A fresh apple note lingers nicely. Drink now.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

Composed and showing no overwrought oak or tropical fruit aromas that so often plague Chilean Chardonnay. A smooth operator, with toasty apple and mineral aromas leading to a ripe but cleansing palate and finish. This is like winemaker Marcelo Retamal's favorite child; with proper guidance it is growing better every year. Best overall Chardonnay to date from Limarí.
