2021 Morande Black Series Chardonnay - 93 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The 2021 Chardonnay Black Series from Traiguén, Malleco, and was aged in 35% new oak barrels. A greenish yellow hue. The nose presents austere lime, acacia and aniseed notes over a layer of green apple, oak and hazelnuts and hints of ginger zest. Centered by the freshness (this white is all about the balanced acidity), it has a packaged, creamy texture before the long-lasting, malic finish. - Joaquín Hidalgo"

james suckling hq logo plain"Fresh and pure on the nose with green fruits and lots of star fruit, a hint of flint and a slight creamy edge. Subtle and bright with a tense mid-palate that creates a creamy but fresh mouthfeel. Medium- to full-bodied and long. Drink now."
