De Martino Viejas Tinajas Muscat 2018, Itata

Muscat from Chile
Review Date : 01-Dec-2021
Lightly hazy, medium straw-yellow with a gold-amber hue. The nose is full and complex, with good energy, aromas of rambutan, dried apricot, orange zest, interweave candied orange, Turkish delight and lavender. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, very fresh on the palate, nuances of citrus and zest lead the flow with dried apricot, candied orange, perfumes of lavender, and Turkish delight linger. Great energy flow carried by vibrant acidity. The skin contact element contributes to an unctuous palate, leaves a slightly chewy mouthfeel. This is a complex, on-skins Muscat with great energy, bright acid tension and depth of purity. Match with Époisses and chanterelle mushroom in butter & herb over the next 8+ years. 100% Muscat de Alexandria, fermented in tinajas (terracotta amphorae), 6 months maceration on skins, 12.5% alc. 18.5+/20 (94 pts) Dec 2021 RRP $57
