Bright color. Fruity, fresh, floral aromas and flavors of peach, green apple, lemon, and pineapple with a soft, crisp, dry light-to-medium body and a warming, breezy finish. A refreshing, lemony picnic wine.

While Chile is most associated with red wines, whites are also produced in several regions throughout the country. Chardonnay is the leading white cultivar and is planted in the Central Valley for value-priced wines as well as cool climates not far from the Pacific Ocean, such as Casablanca and Leyda Valleys, where the wines are far more complex with higher acidity for longer aging potential.

Sauvignon Blanc is the second most planted white variety in Chile; like Chardonnay, there are varying quality levels. The finest examples, especially those from the cool San Antonio Valley very close to the ocean, are world-class in quality, with assertive varietal flavors.

Small amounts of Riesling, Viognier, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris are also planted in Chile.
