Analysis

The Natura wines emphasize organic farming of popular varietals from many of Chile's best wine growing regions. Their Chardonnay grapes are hand-picked in late March (southern hemisphere) and fermented in stainless steel at low temperatures. The resulting wine is bright and massively appealing with the added benefit of being sold at a bargain price. 87 points.

How to Enjoy

This wine needs nothing more than a glass as the bright crisp flavors make it an ideal aperitif.
