Description

Chile is a country of two halves, vineyards planted near the ocean of which there are many as Chile has a very long coastline, are cool climate regions due to the very cold onshore breezes compared with the more southern inland, hot regions. There is the opportunity for such diversity due to the extreme climatic differences. Lack of water is becoming more of an issue and hence lots of work is being done on dry-farming (no irrigation). This is a country with great potential and one to keep an eye on as it offers great value for money wines. Limited Selection Cabernet, Carmenere blend. Carmenere is an old Bordeaux variety that Chile is claiming as their signature variety now.

Smells

pungent aromas of blackcurrants, roasted green peppers (typical of Carmenere), dark chocolate, green coffee beans and spices.

Tastes

Carmenere needs a very hot climate to ripen, ideally suited to Chile's inland Southern regions. But it gives its distinctive savoury, herbal notes to this wine combined with the cassis flavours of Cabernet result in an earthly, dark, rich wine with slightly grippy tannins and a zesty acid finish. The opulent fruit makes for great drinking now through till 2026, serve with slow roasted meats, especially beef cheeks.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
