Tasting notes on the wine: 

“The nose has wild fresh green herbs such as rosemary and basil with undertones of waxy minerals and a touch of apricot and pineapple. The palate has a great minerality and complex core of stone and tropical fruits. Drink chilled but not too cold. Pairs well with hearty mushroom risotto.” — Pedro J. Rodriguez

About the winemaker: 

“The Villalobos family, relative newcomers to the Chilean wine scene, focuses on low-intervention wine production, taking care of the land and sustainability in Lolol, Chile. This wine spends up to 30 days macerating with the skins which gives it more body, texture, weight, and complexity.  — Pedro J. Rodriguez
