A Chilean Sparkling with a nice looking bottle (classy label). Loads of orange notes in the nose with some sugars and mild yeast that come out eventually. Very well-balanced taste with some sourness, some dryness, not too much sweetness (except on the lips) and light yeast in the aftertaste. Not syrupy at all, so goes down very well. The yeast does get slightly stronger with time adding hints of nuts, tart. Pricier than most Chilean wines, but a great all-around Sparkling (worth the price).

Rating: 3.8/5

Classy label for this Chilean white wine. Wow ! Loads of fruits in the nose. Tropical fruits, grapes and mild sourness. The sourness shows a little more in the taste, at first. Covers the sweetness of the fruits. Some nice dry sharpness without being dry in the finish. A little watered-down but overall a real nice Sauvignon Blanc and quite enjoyable for our first of 2015.
