Aquitania, Sol de Sol Chardonnay, Traiguén, Malleco, Chile 2011

Rating: 19/20pts (96)
Malleco, located about 700km south of Santiago, is a very rainy and cool area. In the late 1990s, Aquitania began to plant Chardonnay there, being one of the pioneers of viticulture in southern Chile. Sol de Sol is a model of a modern Chilean white, with its deep fruit, sharp acidity and soft touches of flint. The oak is perfectly integrated, giving great complexity and depth to the flavours. A wine with great ageing potential.
