Santa Rita Chardonnay 120 2013
External Reviews for Santa Rita Chardonnay 120
/ When I was in Chile in January, the winery presented the 1999 Casa Real. It seems clear that Santa Rita Casa Real is on of Chile's benchmark wines.
/ Funky barnyard with cedar, cassis, wet hay, toasty oak, plum, and dried fruit on the nose. Inky black fruit on the palate with smooth tannins. Fatty beef; braised brisket; short ribs with spices.
Year's Best Chilean Reds/ Attractive dry cherry, cinnamon and chamomile aromas make this firm and sweet, to serve with aged goat cheese.
/ ...purple colored with complex aromatics of spice box, tobacco, graphite, red currants, and black currants. It has an intense entry onto the palate with spicy, layered flavors, ripe tannins, and great balance in its full-bodied personality.
2002 Casa Real - Descorchados, 95 Points and "Best Chilean Red"/
Drinks with Les Dames: Cecilia Torres, Santa Rita/ A great example of how well Santa Rita’s upper-tier wines can age, this one has smoothed out a bit and has taken on a lusher quality than when it was first released. Rich, ripe blackberry and currant flavors, with roasted coffee, bittersweet chocolate and sweet, smoky earthy notes that fold together on a long finish.
/ Dark and muscular, with lots of tobacco, cocoa, loam and currant notes supported by dense but fresh tannins. Has ample length on the finish. Not as dynamic as previous vintages, but still outstanding.
