Transversal – 94 points
“The winemaker Felipe Müller mixes Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Cabernet Franc with Syrah from vineyards in two very different valleys: Limarí and Maipo. Still very young, with
tempting scents layered with graphite, black currant and blackberry. Harmonious, juicy and pure on the palate, elevated by calcareous tannins and fine oak notes underlined by a taut acidity.
Attractive, it exceeds expectations on all fronts”. Harvest 2016.
