"A layered and pretty white with cooked apple, hints of cream and toasted oak. Yogurt too. Full body. Flavorful finish. Drink now. Screw cap."~JS

"Beautiful bright yellow color. The nose is rich in fruit aromas of banana, apricot, gooseberry, physalis, kumquat, and yellow plums, accented by notes of cucumber, yellow bell pepper, and green olives. The mouthfeel is fresh, creamy and buttery."-Winemaker's Notes

"Los Vascos traces its roots to approximately 1750 and to the original vineyard of Miguel Echenique. The vineyard passed down through the family throughout the succeeding centuries.
The acquisition of 50% of Los Vascos by Rothschild (Lafite) in 1988 was the result of a careful search among more than one hundred Chilean wines for one that could meet their criteria for excellence. A team of winemakers from Domaine Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) control the viticulture, harvest, maceration, fermentation and aging of the wines at Los Vascos. Strict control of yields from the estate and adherence to the winemaking techniques of Chateau Lafite result in wines of high quality, whose characteristics do not escape connoisseurs. All production is estate bottled."-Winery Notes

5/5 stars
Dry, well balanced, not oaky. - Very nice wine, although I like their sauvignon blanc a bit more. It's bone dry and very refreshing.

Too fruity and no oak whatsoever! - I checked, and double-checked to make certain I received the same wine that was described in official reviews. There were NO "Hints of cream and toasted oak whatsoever." As well as there is no, " mouthfeel fresh, creamy and buttery." In fact, the label reads 100% Chardonnay -- Un-Oaked. I am someone who loves a buttery, creamy Char and found this too fruity and tangy.
