Crisp, refreshing and unbelievably juicy. The nose is a citrus salad, with crushed lemons and limes and a hint of herbal freshness. The mouth is lacy, ripe yet endlessly vibrant, each sip infused with white fruits and lemon zest, and the finish lively with notes of white pepper and liquid minerals. Clean with just enough complexity to keep the palate invigorated.
Very nicely done for a new brand that we haven’t seen before. This is Chilean SB in fine form. It’s a mix of green and ripe fruits both on the nose and palate. Aromas of gooseberry and mango are alluring, and in the mouth it bounces along on a wave of bracing acidity. Elegant and easier toprocess than Quintay’s more pungent, angular and demanding Reserva.
Viña Quintay belongs to a group of people who love Casablanca and its wines. Felipe Aldunate, Hernán Gómez, Pablo Gómez, Edmundo Eluchans, Jaime Charles, Felipe Larraín, Felipe Morandé, and the Rencoret family share the common objective of taking the best advantage of Chile’s cool-climate varieties and the wines they produce. With a focus on making fine wines in the Premium and Super Premium categories, they have created a different kind of enological project with limited production.
