This Chilean wine spent 10 months in French oak which imparts to the wine a softer, rounder body and feeling on the palate. It is not as aggressive as say, a Californian oaked Chard. Think of the style as somewhere between Meursault and Chablis in terms of buttery richness vs. minerality. Quite nice.
