The journalist recognized both varietals in his latest report on Chilean wines, delivering 95 and 94 points to Amelia Pinot Noir 2018 and Amelia Chardonnay 2018, respectively.
U.S. critic James Suckling awarded high scores to the 2018 vintages of Amelia Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The journalist gave 95 points to Amelia Pinot Noir and 94 points to the line’s Chardonnay. Both accolades are the highest scores ever delivered by the critic to Amelia, thus consolidating winemaker Marcelo Papa‘s latest proposal for these wines, which seeks to demonstrate the great potential of the Limarí Valley.
With respect to Amelia Pinot Noir, the critic noted that it is “a rich, round Pinot Noir with full body, lots of density and layers of ripe tannins that finish bright and vivid. Love the flavors at the finish. Tension and precision. Watch out Burgundy.” Meanwhile, his comments on Amelia Chardonnay highlighted that it, “is a dense, layered Chardonnay with cooked apples, white peaches and flowers. Full-bodied, yet tight with intense acidity. Punchy at the end. Mineral and stone undertones. Very complex.”
