FOR THE 2018 VINTAGE
Chalky-lemon, green-mango and pineapple character. Medium-bodied with a mineral streak on the palate. Vibrant acidity cleanses the palate. Pair this with Thai food. Drink now.

90pts The Wine Advocate – 2018 vintage

FOR THE 2018 VINTAGE
The 2018 Cordillera Chardonnay was produced with grapes form the Tabalí vineyards in Limarí, 60% from Espinal and 40% from Talinay. It fermented 50/50 in stainless steel and used oak barrels, where it matured for 10 months.

This has the sapidity of the limestone soils and the salinity of the ocean (and the fog), and they have lowered the impact from the élevage by using a lot less new oak—and it shows. The wine is harmonious and has great precision; it’s clean, long and has the character of the place, grape and variety.

What more can you ask for at this price? 12,900 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2019.
