Butter, vanilla, fennel seed, toasty oak spice, baked apple and lemon curd all come together on this rather classic nose. Fairly restrained on entry, this shows some butteriness on the palate along with simple if clear flavors of apple and lots of mango. The toasty spice kicks in on the backend with a strong vein of vanilla driving the moderately long, slightly dry and vaguely tannic finish. By the number Chardonnay. 86pts

A fair amount of toasty oak greets the nose along with lots of dried herb character and black currant fruit. This is smooth and fairly opulent in the mouth with a nice base of rather well managed tannins and good acidity that supports lots of plummy and black currant fruit. This turns a bit extracted and bitter on the long finish. This has a certain blend of polish and extraction that will appeal to many but come off clumsily to me. 86pts

Interesting Maipo white made from Sauvignon Gris which is a clonal mutation of sauvignon blanc. More of the white stone fruit (not too ripe peach and pear) versus grapefruit or lemon almost Riesling like. Nice acidity, a bit of perfume similar to a roussanne but lighter.

The wine itself is a lovely deep ruby in the glass, and the nose is full of ample rich, ripe fruit, leather, cedar and anise. The taste is very dry all around, with some very subtle fruit, black currant and cherries, yielding to some mild spices midpalate. The finish is somewhat short, but bone dry, making this an ideal accompaniment to a variety of grilled meats and savory dishes. As a side note, it's advisable to let this wine breathe a bit before serving, it's not undrinkable straight from the bottle, but it does open up nicely with a half hour or so in the air.

This is a charming wine. The name reminds me of gris-gris which is of phrase of West African origin and refers to the use of charms, usually several together stored in a cloth sack and worn around the neck or otherwise on the body. It also implies a gray sauvignon blanc which makes me think of a gritty wine but this is absolutely not that -- it's a fine wine (as in texture). The grape may be gray but the wine color is pale yellow. I''m out of battery and will have to come back later and finish this when I can recharge...

straw colored, drier than most reislings, but you still get a hint of the characteristic sweetness. I would say more pineapple than tangerine, with a touch of spice on the tongue.

This wine has grown on me with each return to the bottle. Opened up the 2006 we brought back from the vineyard. Oaky, but not too much. Some grapefruit, best when it's very cold. Great by itself after dinner. Semi-dry I think.

A fairly light nose. Very soft and fruity for a cab. A touch of bitterness on the finish with strong licorice notes. Very fruity and rather nice. Served with beef curry. Very nice for the price. Really a 3.5

A distinctive wine with aromas of wildflowers, citrus and spices. Slightly more body and a richer texture than his cousin the Sauvignon Blanc

This is an appealing, well structured Chardonnay with generous aromas of toast, honey and ripe tropical fruits. A buttery, rich wine with gently oaky flavors on the palate, it matches well with fish, salads and white meat dishes.

Aromas and flavors of balckberries, cherries and cocoa, ending with spices and black truffles.

One of our best values in Cabernet Sauvignon. It has remarkable concentration and style, with blackberry and plum fruit and notes of violets and chocolate. A Chilean First Growth.

Excellent quality from one of the most consistent wineries in Chile. This is a full-bodied, dark-fruited, earthy red wine with ripe tannins.

A ripe and juicy style filled with plum and blueberry accents. Great with outdoor grilling and in particular, BBQ ribs.

Aromatic layers of spice and toast lead into flavors of blackberry, cherry and toasty oak. A medium-bodied wine, the texture is full and rich with well-integrated tannins that will stand up to smoked or grilled meats.
