This was a surprising treat from the new world, Chile no less. The wine exhibited some effervescence which will make it an ideal refreshing summer wine. Fruit was predominantly peaches that coated the mouth. The wine is well made, clean, crisp, and very good value and a nice change from the Alsace bulk gewurtzs. Chile seems to have held off making wine from premature vines unlike some of its Ontario counterparts. I put this dig in because I've been burned by too many VQAs made from such grapes.

South America has exploded on to the wine scene in recent years with a plethora of great wines and this effort is no different: definitely of the 'new world' in terms of aroma and flavour: peach - and lots of it, lychee and some apple plus a touch of sparkle; sweeter than most but still very good and will appeal to late harvest Riesling fans; quite nice.

Lovely wine. Peaches on the nose with some floral notes. Crisp acidity and some spiciness on the palate. Well balanced and juicy.
