Bright, light yellow color with some green hints. A Riesling of delicate grace and aromatic intensity. The nose is fresh and crisp, with soft flower aromas like jasmine, which combine softly with citric notes. In the mouth, citric flavors of grapefruit mingle with mineral hints. This Rielsing is fresh and young, with great volume and pleasant acidity - perfect to pair with seafood, white meat, cheeses and desserts. Food Pairing: This delicate and elegant wine is a good partner for equally refined dishes: caviar, foie gras, smoked salmon, almost every single shell-fish species (shrimp, crab and lobster especially) and white meats. Less known is its predilection for vegetarian or oriental dishes, ideally Thai, and sweet or savoury recipes that include fruits: prunes wrapped in bacon and apple pie for example.

Wine EnthusiastA true Riesling from the deep south of Chile with petrol and peach pit aromas and then sweeter citrus flavors. It’s full, fresh and balanced, with a friendly, easy finish that suggests mango and pineapple. Starts out Germanic but finishes tropical.
