Description

Why we love it
A rich, elegant Chilean red that reveals itself in stages, highlighting the complexity of the blend of grape varieties.

Tasting notes
Deep reddish purple in colour. On the nose, notes of blackberry, tobacco leaf, black cherry, cloves and spice. Complex and intense on the palate with notes of dark bramble fruit, spice and earth. Supple, concentrated tannins.

Food pairing
Serve with hearty fare such as game meats, braised red meats or tagines.

Additional information
The vines for this wine were planted without rootstocks in a Phylloxera-free area. The proximity of Lolol to the Pacific Ocean means that morning mists and cool evenings are commonplace. The grapes were hand harvested early in the morning to take advantage of low night temperatures, and the fruit was cold soaked before a long, warm fermentation. The wine spent a short time on its lees and was aged for 18 months in a combination of first- and second-fill French-oak barrels.
