Apaltagua, Gran Verano Carmenère, Valle Central, 2019

Carmenère, a Bordeaux grape related to Cabernet Franc, is much more successful in the heat of Chile than it in its home in south-west France. (Where once it was a significant component in Bordeaux it is now an also-ran there). This is a juicy wine, a pleasant cocktail of redcurrant, blackberry and raspberry, with the merest hint of the tobacco / nicotine notes which mark the grape. The Gran Verano wines are made at Vina Apaltagua from their own estate grown grapes. Now-2021

Absolutely loving the sun case, what a great way to be introduced to new wines.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
