Awards/Reviews

94 points Decanter March 2020

Beautifully judged Chardonnay with real energy and focus. Excellent fruit quality and freshness allied to a well-integrated, praline and creamy-textured generosity. The oak is deftly integrated and the quality of both the vineyard site and winemaking expertise is evident.

93 points James Suckling June 2018

This has great freshness with pear, lemon and floral aromas and just a hint of toast. Sleek and elegant, but concentrated, with a long, polished, rather mineral finish. Drink or hold.

91 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate Oct 2018

The 2017 Chardonnay Aconcagua Costa was produced with grapes from their Chilhué vineyard in Quillota that is located 12 kilometers away from the Pacific Ocean, in the coastal part of Aconcagua. It fermented with native yeast in oak barrels, where the wine matured for 11 months. It has moderate alcohol (13%) and remarkable acidity. In the Aconcagua Costa region, 2017 was cooler than 2016, and they were able to harvest the grapes early and keep a vibrant palate with crisp acidity and clean, focused flavors of great purity. It’s subtly floral, and the oak is perfectly integrated in the wine, which comes through as elegant and balanced. 55,272 bottles produced. It was bottled in October 2017.
