Moscatel Tinaja, Mauricio González, 2018

£ 16.00 

This wine comes from the Bio Bio Valley in Chile, one of the country's most southernly wine-making regions. The moscatel grape here is picked early so that the skins don't harden, and it's aged in 120-year-old clay vessels, or tinaja as they're called in Spanish.

"This is one of those of wines that shouts butter to me. Not the kind of buttery richness of great white Burgundy, no. It's more the reminder of butter mixed with sea slat as it hits the pan. Natural and orange, but not pongy – this is endlessly drinkable. It's got white flowers in there too and a nice bite on the palate." - JL
