The Details

In a Nutshell

Zesty and flinty Riesling with a beautifully fresh finish.

Tasting Notes

Quietly complex on the nose with fresh lime notes combining with a steely minerality and gentle honeysuckle flora. The palate is mid-weight and off-dry with persistent flavours of lime, there is a natural salinity which gives contrast yet lovely balance. It finishes clean with a lingering flinty character.

Production Notes

Vines were planted in 1993 at the Fundo Quitralman, Mulchén vineyard in the Bio-Bio Valley, 500km south of Santiago. Grapes are handpicked then placed in a pneumatic press to obtain the different musts, which were kept separate. Once ferment was complete, the wine was left in contact with its fine lees in stainless steel tanks for 5 months, with periodic stirring (batonnage) before being fined and bottled.

Producer - Emiliana

With prime vineyards in Casablanca, Maipo, Rapel and Bio-Bio and access to the newest and best clones in Chile (through Jose Guilisasti, brother of Emiliana’s General Manager Rafael who runs Chile’s foremost nursery) Emiliana is a very substantial and impressive organisation. Emiliana is one of the world’s most important producers of Organic and Biodynamic wines. They have a total of 997 hectares under vine of which 923ha are IMO and Demeter certified organic. As South America’s largest organic producer, their spectacular vineyard and winery at Los Robles has the added benefit of being biodynamic and features the sensory delights of roaming Alpacas, dung heaps and dynamised biodynamic mixtures to treat the vineyards
