Viña Echeverría Chardonnay Molina Unwooded 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Frische rassige Fruchtnoten, intensives, komplexes Bouquet. Duftet nach Zitrusfrüchten und Melonen. Eher leicht im Körper, süffig und rassig. Ein sehr schöner Sommerwein, ohne Holzfassausbau (sans barrique).

I have fallen in LOVE with the reds out of this vineyard in the Cohchugua Valley of Chile. Their fresh, distinctive quality and absolute definitive & distinctive freshness, purity, and adherence to the grape varietal flavor is beyond phenomenal. What I love even more is that for the price points on these wines, you are getting better taste & quality for your dollar; definitely NOT overpaying for wine- you are UNDERPAYING for the quality of the syrah, carmenere, and cabernet. I have the best description of their med-heavy reds - DECADENT VELVET WITH ABSOLUTE PERFECTED PURITY & DINSTINCTIVE FRESHNESS. TRY THEIR WINES! THEY ARE WELL WORTH THE PRICE UNDER $20 for young vintages- and the quality increases yearly uncorked! THESE ARE BEYOND BEST BUYS! THESE ARE BEST EVERS! Read less

A Chardonnay unlike any other in the New World. This is a hand-crafted wine without any trace of oak influence. Aromas of tropical fruits and pears intermingle with mouth-watering acidity, while the wine retains a lovely round feel on the palate.
