Wine review: Concha Y Toro “Frontera / After Dark” Chardonnay (2018, Central Valley, Chile)

Crisp, light, and restorative. Flavor disappears quickly but leaves a modestly bright, clean mouth feel. Simple aromatic profile, nothing mysterious – just a decent foundation: Steel, citrus pith, and colorful Autumnal oak leaves that have just left the trees. Superb value as a secondary wine to bring along to a summer picnic, to serve to ravenously thirsty crowds, to have with a dinner of herbs, or as an ingredient in a dish of broiled fish, vegetable or seafood soup, or poached fruit.

M.E.B.
