The wine comes from the Las Petras Vineyard in a sector of the Casablanca Valley that is highly influenced by the Pacific coast, with cloudy mornings and cold, windy days. The red clay soils have low water retention and fertility, conditions that encourage the grapes to ripen slowly and later in the season.
Amelia’s distinctive and elegant style—which benefits from simple, natural, and non-oxidative fermentation and vinification techniques—has been widely applauded, and in 2011 it reached a historic triumph when it was revealed as the Nº1 wine in the Moscow Wine Tasting during the Moscow International Wine Expo (MIWE). The event followed the blind tasting format used in the historic Paris Tasting that Steven Spurrier organized in 1976.
Amelia’s celebrated triumph, along with awards and accolades from the most important national and international specialized publications places Concha y Toro’s white wines in a place of honor in the world’s wine industry.
A ripe, rich white, displaying notes of baking spice, black licorice and ‑int to the zesty pineapple and guava fruit ‑avors. Shows plenty of character, featuring fresh acidity driving the long nish.
