Dried apricots, macadamia, fresh fig, quince, brioche notes. Palate transitions to a fresh delight, cutting the rich aromas with candied orange peel, orange oil and exotic spice. Breezy and charming yet nuanced. This mezcla blanca (white blend) is mostly Riesling, with Chardonnay and Torontel playing supporting roles. Winemaker Rafael Tirado purchased land in the Maule Valley in 1993, planting his first estate vines in volcanic ash over granite; he is the sole producer in the Colbun D.O. The native yeast fermentation in concrete tank gives us a pure glimpse of the Riesling varietal and its expression in this terroir.
