"Nice, sour-cream overlay to the green-apple and lemon-zest character. Full of flavors on the palate with mineral, almost salty character. Crisp and quite refreshing. Well balanced. Drink now. Screw cap."

Vineyard Info

Since 1993, William Fevre, the famous vintner of Chablis in Burgundy, has been producing exceptional wines in his Chilean Estates. He is one of the first and only ones to produce at high altitude in what now is called the new D.O. Maipo Vallley - Andes in Chile. Low temperatures and a mix of coluvial and aluvial soils gives complex, elegant and fresh wines. The vineyards are aged between 10 and 35 years, always looking for higher altitude in our farm of more than 2000 hectares in the Maipo Canyon, between 670 and more than 1000 meters above the sea level.

Espino is a Chilean acacia present in austere and dry terroirs, in altitude. It is also a word play with the last name of the Chilean Partner of Mr. Fevre, Mr. Victor Pino. In spanish the word ES means IS.
