Concha Y Toro, Casillero del Diablo, Reserva Chardonnay 2016, Chile
Tasting Note: A chardonnay from Chile with balance and ripe green fruit that tastes more expensive than it actually is.
Medium intensity gold in color this wine has a nose of green apple, pear, quince, pineapple and lemon citrus with secondary vanilla and yoghurt aromas.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied chardonnay shows flavors suggested on the nose along with light oak.
The wine is medium in acidity with bright green fruit showing through to a medium-plus finish.
The chardonnay is balanced with fruit and oak playing with rather than against each other.
A chardonnay for the red wine lover in your life.
Bottle Note: Winemaker’s Note – A crisp chardonnay packed with tropical fruit flavors and subtle hints of vanilla. Medium bodied with good balance and a fresh finish. Food Match – Great with fish and seafood and creamy pasta dishes.
