Exuberant and expressive, this Moscatel displays the grape variety’s signature flamboyance, paired with a purity of fruit that is so quintessentially Chilean. The wine opens with an intoxicating boisterous amalgam of floral aromas—white rose, orange blossom, jasmine. It’s equally bold on the palate, with fleshy flavors of grapefruit oil, starfruit, and kiwi, coupled with muskier spice market notes.
