This wine has a nice gold color with some pink hues. On the nose, it shows some sweet notes of spices, dry nuts, white flowers, as well as some light notes of huesillo (dry peaches). In the mouth it shows a beautiful acidity, with a nice mouthfeel and structure and a good length to the finish.

2019 Siegel Naranjo Viognier - 90 PTS - TA

tim atkin logo 250"One of a growing number of orange wines in Chile - it's good to see the country embracing new styles - this Viognier hails from the Siegel's San Alberto vineyard in Peralillo, planted in 1999. Fermented for three weeks on its skins before ageing in wood, it's a dense, flavoursome white with plenty of grip and extract, some tannic grip and flavours of blood orange, peach and quince. 2021-24"

2018 Siegel Naranjo Viognier - 91 PTS - TA

tim atkin logo 250"Quite possibly the only orange wine in South America that's made from Viognier, this spent two weeks on skins during fermentation and was then aged in older barrels. It's a very appealing and unusual wine, with nectarine and blood orange flavours and focused, refreshing acidity. 2020-23"
