  • FlavorLively, crisp acidity thanks to its cool climate origin and citric flavors are beautifully complemented with a steely minerality and subtle, integrated oak flavors. The spontaneous malolactic that occurs in some barrels adds some creaminess and complexity

  • Score: 90 Vintage 2018 Wine Advocate The 2018 Tectonia Chardonnay is produced with fruit from Malleco, a southern zone with plenty of rain and no need to irrigate. It fermented and matured in barrique, and the oak is very integrated. The wine is fresh and somewhat mineral, with a slaty twist on the finish. It's clean and has varietal character, good acidity and freshness and some citrus flavors on the finish. 6,288 bottles were filled in March 2019. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2017 Wine Enthusiast Briny, sweaty aromas are cidery, while this feels tight and slightly oily on the palate. Salty flavors of dry melon and seashell reflect the cool Malleco Valley environs from which this hails. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
