Tasting Notes:
Straw yellow color, intense aroma, pineapple, herb. In the mouth is balanced, fresh, high acidity, at the end has a slightly salty taste, typical and characteristic of the wines of this area.

Robert Parker (RP) : 91 Points (2017)
The 2017 Legado Chardonnay was produced with fruit from Limarí on stony volcanic soils with clay and limestone. The drought between 2013 and 2015 killed some vineyards and increased the salinity of the soils, which is reflected in the wines. And 2017 was a low-yielding year, even in young vineyards like this one planted in 2009. The juice from pressing the full clusters fermented in used oak barrels with indigenous yeasts, and only 10% of the volume underwent malolactic. It matured in barrels for 14 months. The whole Legado range shows very varietal, more so in the Chardonnay than the Sauvignon Blanc, with the chalky texture of the limestone soils. Starting with the 2015 vintage, this wine is produced with grapes from Tabalí. Great for the price. 56,498 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2018.

A solid white with sliced apple and lemon aromas and flavors. Medium body. Hints of minerals too. (5/2016)

Decanter (DCT) : 90 Points (2014)
From one of the most innovative and exciting producers in Chile comes this cool-climate, single vineyard wine. It's elegant yet full-bodied, with citrus and ripe apple aromas. There's oak but it's subtle, thanks to the use of old barrels, and the creamy texture is well supported by a fresh, vivacious acidity.

The wine displays lovely peach and creamy notes, with an oyster shell minerality that runs through the palate.  Full flavoured and textured but with a vibrant acidity and a long lingering…
