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

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.

Friendly helpful people selling good quality interesting wines from many countries and at competitive prices. Wines you will NOT find in the supermarket! Free local delivery has been a boon during lockdown. What's not to love about SVS???
