Concha Y Toro, Casillero del Diablo, Reserva Chardonnay 2015, Chile

Tasting Note: A light-bodied, crowd-pleasing, chardonnay with a lemon citrus kick that screams summer.

Pale lemon in color this wine has a nose of fresh green apple and pear with notes of lemon citrus and faint vanilla.

On the palate the light-bodied chardonnay is medium in acidity with tart green fruit and citrus showing across the length of the taste ultimately completing with a zesty, somewhat chalky finish.

Bottle Note: Winemaker’s Note: A crisp chardonnay packed with tropical fruit flavours 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. More than 100 years ago, Don Melchor de Concha Toro reserved for himself an exclusive batch of his best wines. To keep strangers away from his private reserve, he spread the rumor that the devil lived in that place. Hence the name: Casillero del Diablo, “the devils cellar.”
