Not quite Aussie ‘medium bodied”, but certainly more so than many BC and California Savignons. Stone fruit aromas open up to spicy tones and then a lush oaky finish. It’s nicely structured.
The wine hails from the Coastal area of Maipo Valley, near the Maipo River – Chile’s prime wine region. Warm days, cool nights and a dry-ish climate. Texture and rounded tannins come from French/American oak barrel aging.
Grilled pork chops, peas, and yummy scalloped potatoes were a great accompaniment.
