Carolyn scored this wine: 93/100
Valdivieso is the oldest producer of sparkling wine in Chile. This traditional method sparkling is 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir with no dosage. Valdivieso's experience and attention to detail is apparent in this elegant example. The experience starts on the pour with a very fine, elegant mousse. Beautifully balanced, well structured and fresh on the palate. The yeasty notes on the nose and palate give way to hints of apple and pear. The long finish culminates in a delightful lingering touch of ginger and spice. This beauty would go well with any fish,seafood, mild dishes or cheeses but is perfect on its own. Watch for this one in the LCBO April 2019.
