Sara M WSET Advanced reviewed this wine as follows:

Tropical notes of passionfruit and pineapple up front with a lovely hint of sweet peas mid-palate. Crisp acidity and a hint of minerality on the finish. Well-balanced. Great for sipping on a patio and pairs well with grilled seafood and mild cheeses.
Pure, fresh, balanced Savvy from Chile that shows the country’s strength with the variety. Aromas of grapefruit rind, asparagus and tropical fruits. Dry with very good intensity and a long, zippy finish. A fine match for grilled prawns with a mildly spicy sauce. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
