25 / 01 / 2021

Expressing the extreme Limarí northern valley’s unique characteristics, which gives it complexity and elegance, Amelia became one of the world’s favorite brands for specialized journalists.

Outstanding journalists and wine critics praised both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, delivering excellent scores. Amelia Chardonnay 2018 was awarded 94 points by James Suckling, 95 points by Robert Parker, and 97 points by Tim Atkin. The latter said that Amelia Chardonnay is “at the level of the best Chardonnay that Chile and South America have ever produced.”

Amelia Pinot Noir 2018, on the other hand, was awarded 94 points by Robert Parker and 95 points by James Suckling, who emphasized that it is “a rich, round, full-bodied Pinot Noir, with a lot of density and layers of mature tannins that end up bright and alive.”

Likewise, both varieties were awarded a Gold Medal at the prestigious Women’s Wine & Spirits Awards 2021, recording a significant brand milestone.

Amelia’s seeks to express Limarí Valley’s uniqueness as one of the most extreme valleys in the north of Chile characterized by its high minerality. The valley carries a high concentration of calcium carbonate or “lime,” which turns out to be unbeatable conditions for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir varieties.

With this intricate and elegant minerality, Amelia seeks to position Limarí as the origin of this variety’s production in Chile. We can say that this 2020, Amelia definitely came through.
