Apaltagua Reserva Chardonnay Unoaked Chardonnay Chile 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Bright and intense on the nose with layers of pineapple, passionfruit and guava notes. This is vibrantly acidic, too acidic for many palates, though it has its place like with ceviche. The fruit is quite ripe with a slightly sweet cashew edge to the pineapple and Meyer lemon fruit on the palate. The finish is a touch short but it does leave the palate clean and fresh, with lingering hints of lime peel and a hint of melon fruit. This is zesty with a nice hint of minerality on the finish, but it’s not your typical Chardonnay. Might appeal more to Sauvignon Blanc drinkers. 87pts

Fairly nice unoaked chardonnay from Chile. Lots of citrus, lemon, white pepper with a somewhat metallic edge on the finish.
