Joaquín Hidalgo, winemaker, and journalist, recently published his second report on Vinous called “Chile: A Stylistic Journey from the Andes to the Coastal Ridge,” giving Concha y Toro wines excellent scores. Hidalgo is responsible for tasting wines from Chile and Argentina for Vinous, a prestigious digital wine publication.
Amelia Chardonnay 2019 scored an extraordinary 95 points, while Amelia Pinot Noir 2019 received a remarkable 94 points. Within the report, the journalist highlighted the words of Marcelo Papa, Technical Director of Concha y Toro: “The Amelia Chardonnay marked a radical change for those of us who went to Quebrada Seca, Limarí. It offers a texture with more elegant fruity flavors.” Hidalgo added that “the Chardonnay Amelia is indeed a success. Austere with precise fruity flavors accompanied by lime and ginger, it is the standard-bearer”.
The 2018 vintage of Concha y Toro’s icon Carmenere -Carmin de Peumo- was awarded 94 points. As for the Terrunyo line, its 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon scored 93 points, the 2019 Carmenere 92 points and the 2020 Sauvignon Blanc 91 points.
