From Chile's cool Limarí Valley, this achieves outstanding balance, depth, and length. The oak is there, in the form of vanilla, nuts, and mild spice, as is the butter, but these are complemented on the nose by a fruity, dry-Riesling-like cornucopia of apricot, pineapple, apple, yellow plum, and lemon, with replays of tropical and orchard fruit on the palate. What stands out, though, is the lemon-lime citrus, rich yet refreshing lemon meringue pie, the acid cutting through the thickness, along with a touch of minerality and then grapefruit pith on the finish. New World Chard near its very best.
