Why we love it
A versatile, unoaked Rhône-style red blend from a small-scale, hands-on Chilean wine-making operation (run by a guy from Dorset!).

Tasting notes
Ruby red in colour. On the nose and palate, hints of fresh strawberries along with dark summer berries. Fresh and easy drinking. Grenache provides the fruit-forward element of the wine and some grippy tannins, with Syrah adding structure and colour. Mourvèdre gives elegance and finesse, while Roussanne adds roundness and mouthfeel alongside a slightly tropical kick.

Food pairing
A versatile food wine that pairs well with most foods, particularly richly sauced darker meats.

Additional information
La Despensa Winery in Chile’s Colchagua Valley is owned, organically farmed and operated by Matt Ridgway, originally from Dorset, and his Chilean wife Ana. The focus is on varieties that are not typical of Chile, such as the traditional Rhône grapes of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre.

The bottle label is inspired by French Art Nouveau advertising posters, and represents the maker’s life in the vineyard, with dogs, cats and vines.
