Chile is such a beautiful country. Absolutely everyone should go there at some point in their lives just to experience how amazing it really is. And it’s not just the scenery that is breath-taking, their wines are as well. We have a couple of great examples of what these guys are capable of…
Clos des Fous “Locura 1” 2014 @ £14.95
Pale yellow with a flash of green. The nose has hints of white peach, pear and white flower blossom. A subtle note of butter on the palate with freshness and brightness, balance and complexity. A persistent and mineral finish.
Errazuriz Wild Ferment Pinot Noir 2014 @ £14.95
A vibrant ruby red with bright violet nuances when the light hits it, the nose of the Wild Ferment Pinot Noir pours red fruit flavours of cherries, raspberries, and exotic fruits, along with notes of dill and tobacco against a floral backdrop. The palate backs up the red fruit flavours with light notes of toast and nuts such as hazelnuts to the mix.
Clos des Fous “Caquenina” 2013 @ £14.95
A dark ruby-red wine with violet tones and outstanding red and black fruit aromas. Black pepper, tea leaves and notes of graphite and violets come through on the palate, revealing a full-bodied wine. The wine is generous and silky with very fine tannins and excellent acidity which enhance the Cauquenina's liveliness and balance.
These ones are some of our absolute favourites and will be with us for a while but don’t wait too long as they do sell out quickly!
