Wines of Chile Tasting
Gems to seek-out:
From Cachapoal Valley, a bright and fruity without being at all jammy. Great texture and spice on the finish. Special Order from Diamond Estate Wines and Spirits.
From Colchagua Valley this is a fun and bold blend of 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Malbec, 24% Syrah and 15% Carmenere. Excellent example of an inventive New World blend that delivers elegance and complexity. Special order from The Kirkwood Group. CSPC #80051
The best Syrah of the tasting. Complex and refined with intense fruit flavours. Colchagua Valley. Special order from The Kirkwood Group. CSPC #173500
Budget wines to stock-up on:
Budget wine and fairly simple, but very drinkable and refreshing - a great price. Special order from Marc Anthony Brands. CSPC #487215
Nicely oaked Chard with good fruit presence. Excellent value. Special order from Landmark Selections. CSPC #494443
A nicely spiced blend that allows the juicy fruit through. An excellent price to boot. Special order from Select Wines.
