La Patagua Semillon Moscatel Hodgkinson 2021, natural wine, Chile, crisp but full of flavour, slightly cloudy appearance. Like the red from the same producer, this natty number at £8.95 is exceptional value. The appearance is reassuringly cloudy so a wine with no clarification and the sulphites are pretty low. It is a little wild on the nose, pithy, yeasty but also with nice citrus and aromatic notes coming through. The palate is excellent, crisp, clean, juicy but also textured. At 14.5% abv, this is not a light wine although is disguised as such, as the abv seems integrated into the wine. Very tasty, very well put together, great value.
