A dry, salmon-pink blend of Gamay (80%), Pinot Noir (10%) and Pinot Gris (10%). Feint floral aromas and peppery red-berry flavours accompany the watermelon juiciness and lingering pink grapefruit notes. A refreshing, colourful quaff for the holiday party season.
Ripe red and black fruits with heavily toasted oak and liquorice notes. Very ripe, full-bodied with barely rough tannins that show some tenderness. Oak is very present throughout, but it is not excessive.
Ripe dark fruits, licorice and a chemical twist (solvent, paint) similar to what is sometimes found in rosés. Warm on the palate, nice fruity taste, slightly rough tannic backbone near the dry finish. Drink now.
Upfront apple, tropical and citrus notes before a clean, refreshing apple-skin and citrus palate underpinned by good acidity with a hint of minerality in the finish.
Full ruby. Menthol and eucalyptus dominate the somewhat atypical nose for a Pinot. Nice fresh attack; tender and silky tannins have a slight bitter edge. Nice dry finish. Original.
Dark ruby-purple in colour with a cedary nose of currants and a light floral note; medium- to full-bodied, dry, well-extracted blackcurrant and black cherry flavours, well-structured with fresh acidity and good length.
Potent and driving VA opens this dense Cabernet Sauvignon from Alto Maipo. Roasted onions, roasted meats, rubber, shellac with soft tannins lined with grippy and gritty sides to a warming finish. There is a bright lift of acidity, which was welcome. Could I tell this was Cab Sauv right away? Not really. Could I tell it was old-school Chile? Sí. Best with your grilled meats barbecue.
