From the Producer
Intense red colour with violet border. On the nose, the wine is potent without losing its elegance. There are clear notes of ripe black fruit like plum, fig and blueberry. There is also great complexity with candied aromas, both of fruit and sweet spices, like baked goods. The 12-months aging in barrels lends a nice level of toast, plus hints of vanilla and dulce de leche. On the palate, the tannins are smooth and well balanced with lots of structure and a long finish. It is begging to be paired with something to eat.
With its stunning, snowy mountains and beautiful beaches, Chile would be captivating even if it wasn’t turning out some of the most interesting and accessible wines in the world. But large producers like Concha y Toro and Casa LaPostolle have put Chile on the wine map with their complex yet value-driven Merlots and Cabernets, and lately smaller regions like Maipo, Casablanca, and the Bio Bio Valley have become more widely available.
Now, Syrah, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Malbec, Sauvignon Blanc, and even that elusive beast of the wine world--affordable Pinot Noir—have joined the ranks of Chile’s most famous offerings. And don’t forget Chile’s signature grape, Carmenere--a peppery, purpley beast that goes wonderfully with grilled meat dishes. Best of all, Chile offers some of the best value in the world, with many outstanding wines selling for under $12.
