Straw yellow in colour with golden hue. The bouquet shows lemon, candle wax and bee pollen with a hint of flor / orange that adds complexity. The palate brings citrus, candied lemon peel and a touch of bee pollen mixed with white flowers and honey (without the sweetness). Vibrant acidity with faint chalky texture make this a mouth watering package.

As the name suggests, the company was established in Derek and Pilars' garage twenty years ago. When the one vineyard that had been supplying them with grapes decided to stop – preferring to sell their fruit to better-known producers – the Garage Wine Company looked further south to the Maule and Itata Valleys in the dry-farmed Secano Interior region. There, the winery started working with small-scale, unknown growers whose ancestors had been dry farming the land since Colonial Times. To this day, these farmers continue to use the wisdom handed down through the generations, resulting in better quality fruit and, ultimately, more characterful wines.
