Chardonnay Leyda Valley Amayna 2006

External Review by CityWineCellar.com:

93 Points - Wine Advocate The Chardonnay exhibits mineral, almond, white peach, and poached pear aromas. On the palate it displays elegance, a creamy texture, layers of flavor, and a striking resemblance to Grand Cru white Burgundy. It is a steal at the asking price. Leyda appears to be Chile’s premier cool-climate grape growing region if these Garces Silva wines under the Amayna label are any indication.

The Amayna wines have excelled in all categories as a luxury product at a reasonable price. Accolades include Decanter Magazine´s best new world white wine for two years in a row, as well as over 90 points in Wine Spectator and Robert Parker. The winery is located in the Leyda Valley, only 9 miles away from the Pacific Ocean. The Garcés Silva family has long been involved in agriculture, livestock and wine-growing, as well as the beverage, financial, and real-estate industries. The winery that bears the family name was founded by José Antonio Garcés Silva, a business man who acquired the property in the Leyda Valley - San Antonio area, thus becoming one of the pioneers in the area’s vitivinicultural development .
