The Cordillera Chardonnay by Miguel Torres from Chile shimmers this wine in a shiny straw yellow with fine golden highlights. The bouquet offers a wonderful variety of aromas. It presents fresh grapefruit along with white currants and juicy vineyard peaches - accompanied by fruit blossoms and an elegant, fine touch of roasted hazelnuts. On the palate, this Chilean white wine presents a juicy, full-bodied body with a melty-creamy texture. The aromas of the nose are also wonderfully present and balance perfectly with the lively acidity. The long finale is accompanied by fruity notes of stone fruit and citrus fruits.
