Complex mineral notes with racing acidity.
A delicious wine to pair with a variety of seafood dishes, white meats like turkey or pork, or pasta prepared with white sauces. Try with butter sole & sauteed vegetables.
On the southern border of Chilean wine country, on the northern shore of Lake Ranco, this Riesling vineyard is planted in volcanic soil. An attractive golden yellow in color, it presents very intense aromas of mango, muscat and elderflower as well as herbs and a trace of wax. Dry on the palate (10.8 grams of sugar) and well balanced with high acidity, it is smooth, full-bodied and flavorful. It will be interesting to see how it develops.Vinous March 2020
The vineyards are planted on small hillsides of the Osorno Valley facing Lake Ranco, creating a special microclimate for the production of vineyards. The hillside is comprised of volcanic soil trumao, which has high water retention. The grapes are hand harvested and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine is aged one year in bottle.
