Taste profile from the winemaker: "A fresh, floral wine with fruity body and a silky palate of great elegance. It shows intriguing notes of exotic fruit (passion fruit, grapefruit)."

ABC Wines review: Fresh grass and citrus aromas with citrus blossom notes are exhibited by this wine but there's also butterscotch-like scent that doesn't marry well with the others. The palate has moderate body, is very fruity and balanced by a brisk acidity. The finish develops slowly but has good complexity. Not among the best of this Chilean varietal or maybe just not aging very well. Our score: Try to locate a more recent vintage. On the low side of Average.
