Baron Philippe de Rothschild & Concha y Toro Almaviva 2011 (1x 75cl)

The new 2014 vintage was awarded 95 points and Outstanding status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their October 2017 edition review of South American 'Icon Wines' whites (see blue link below). We cannot obtain the 2014 yet but offer the 2011.

Baron PdR CyT Almaviva 2014 - October 2017 Decanter review

41 hectares of the Puente Alto vineyard were set aside in the 90's to produce top quality Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes for a joint venture with Baronne Philippine de Rothschild, aiming to create Chile's best red wine. With 3 years of maturity, it is beginning to reveal its pedigree with elegant, complex flavours and an aristocratic length & firm tannins. As Almaviva put it:

Made from a blend of classic Bordeaux varieties, in which Cabernet Sauvignon predominates, Almaviva is the result of a felicitous encounter between two cultures. Chile offers its soil, its climate and its vineyards, while France contributes its winemaking savoir-faire and traditions. The result is an exceptionally elegant and complex wine. Its launch was a major milestone in the development of Chilean wines, both in Chile itself and in the international market.

The 2011 vintage was dry, with only 176 mm of rainfall - around half of normal - between May and September 2010 in Puente Alto. The vintage was characterized by a late vegetative and fruit development, with all stages from budbreak to harvest occurring 10 to15 days later than usual. With lower-than-normal temperatures in March and April, the harvest finally occurred 10 days later than in average years. It started on April 5 with Merlot, and ended on May 25 with the last Carménère. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were picked between April 20 and May 20. The yields were lower than normal, especially for the Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère. The Cabernet Sauvignon berries were particularly small. Together, these peculiar conditions favored great quality of fruit, elegant and pure, with a notable density of ripe, round tannins.

67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Carmenere, 5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot. Barrel-aged for 17 months in new French oak.

The wine is a deep, intense ruby red. The nose, complex and subtle, reveals delicate and clean aromas of ripe cassis, fig and blackberries, accompanied by vanilla, cacao and toffee notes. The wine fills the mouth with smooth, well-refined and silky tannins, leaving an overall impression of balance, finesse, persistence and freshness. This is a pure, elegant and layered wine, harmoniously balanced by a great acidity.

Chateau Los Boldos Tradition Reserve Carmenere 2016 (1x 75cl)

Awarded 90 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their October 2017 edition review of Chilean Carmenère (see blue link below).

Chateau los Boldos Trad Reserve Carmenere 2015 - October 2017 Decanter review

Chateau Los Boldos was founded in 1991 and is situated 100km south of Santiago in the foothills of the Cachapoal Andes. Working with a portion of old vines originally planted in 1948, their focus from an early stage has been on the production of premium wines.

Los Boldos has 170 hectares of vineyards which benefit from a Mediterranean climate. The clear, bright skies during the summer and the high diurnal temperature range are ideal for growing fruit that maintains fresh acidity whilst ripening to perfection. The nearby Cachapoal river also moderates temperatures, while stony alluvial soils in the vineyard ensure low yields. Los Boldos makes wine exclusively from their own vineyards, therefore controlling everything from grape to bottle.

Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks over a period of eight days at temperatures of 25-28°C. After malolactic fermentation, 60% of the wine was aged in French oak for six months prior to bottling.

Deep ruby red in colour. On the nose, ripe red fruit aromas of wild strawberries and redcurrants mingle with black cherry fruit characters and hints of spice from oak. The palate is balanced and fresh, with integrated tannins and an elegant finish.

Clos des Fous Tocao 2013 (1x 75cl)

Awarded 92 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their October 2017 edition article on Malbec in South America (see blue link below).

Clos des Fous Tocao 2013 - October 2017 Decanter review

The Clos des Fous Tocao is a mesmerizing Malbec from a vineyard planted in 1914 in the southern Bío-Bío Valley, producing fruit with marvelously fresh acidity and fine tannins. Today there are only 27 hectares of Malbec in San Rosendo and Clos des Fous farm four of them. Funnily enough, the word 'Tocao' means 'a bit touched in the head', as nobody else would be crazy enough to work with Malbec in this area!

Clos des Fous is an exciting project between four Chilean friends: Pedro Parra (the viticulturalist), François Massoc and Paco Leyton (the winemakers), and Albert Cussen, who looks after the business. 'Fous' is the French word for 'crazy men', a reference to what their peers described as their 'craziness' in crossing the traditional vineyard boundaries of Chile to source grapes from vineyards in the extreme conditions further south and east. Pedro is the person credited with discovering many of the top vineyard sites across Chile, as well as revolutionising the way in which iconic wineries such as Montes plant and manage their vineyards. The winery is based in Maule, to the South of the main vineyard area, where the 'Fous' make an enviable range of top quality varietal wines.

The grapes (80% Malbec, 20% Carignan) are hand harvested and transported to the winery. Traditional fermentation took place in concrete vats. The wine is aged in French oak from the Allier forest, 30% of which is new. It spends almost two years ageing in oak and is not racked.

An incredible wine with ripe and rich fruit, boasting aromas of dark berries and mahogany. It is fulled bodied on the palate with ripe, well structured tannins and a long, intense finish.

£29.75

De Gras Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2016 (1x 75cl)

Deep garnet in colour with hints of purple, has a classic nose of cassis and ripe berry fruit, with hints of spice. On the palate it is full bodied, with a fine structure of ripe tannin and complex concentrated fruit.

£8.95

De Gras Carmenere Reserva 2016 (1x 75cl)

This wine is the same as the MontGras wine of same vintage and status, ie the 2016 Carmenère Reserva, the MontGras simply being the supermarket label for the same wine. Should any doubt exist over this, we would invite you to take a look at the producer's own fiches techniques/technical data sheets for the two wines (see blue link below).

MontGras and de Gras compared - Carmenere Reserva 2016

Awarded 90 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their October 2017 edition review of Chilean Carmenère (see blue link below).

MontGras Reserva Carmenere 2016 - October 2017 Decanter review

The wine is 85% Carmenere, 15% Merlot and hails from the Colchagua Valley, the heartland of Carmenère. Grapes are hand harvested, and the wine was oaked in a measured way (75% oaked, 25% unoaked; for the oaked portion: 80% French oak, 20% American oak; 25% of oak was new; oaking lasted 5 months) to impart complexity without loss of the distinctive Carmenère flavours and fruit.

Deep purple / red in colour with a full bouquet of spice, oak and black fruit and a firm but juicy palate. Offers plum, damson and curranty characters alongside well-integrated toasty oak and layers of vanilla. Excellent, very affordable example of Carmenère.

£8.90

De Gras Merlot 2016 (1x 75cl)

Rich and intensely red in the glass with a generously aromatic, ripe nose loaded with blackberry and plum fruit. An attractive balance of fleshy fruit and oak on the palate with notes of mint, rounded velvety tannins that soften its firm structure and dry finish.

£7.70

De Gras Merlot Reserva 2016 (1x 75cl)

Rich and intensely red in the glass with a generously aromatic, ripe nose loaded with blackberry and plum fruit. An attractive balance of fleshy fruit and oak on the palate with notes of mint, rounded velvety tannins that soften its firm structure and dry finish.

£8.95

De Gras Pinot Noir Reserva 2014 (1x 75cl)

Cherry red in colour with fresh and intense aromas of cherry on the nose with a touch of rose petals. A medium bodied wine with fresh red fruit and a refreshing acidity and richness.

£8.94

De Martino Legado Carmenere 2015 (6x75cl)

Awarded 89 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their October 2017 edition review of Chilean Carmenère (see blue link below).

De Martino Legado Carmenere 2015 - October 2017 Decanter review

The De Martino family came from Italy in 1934 and settled in Chile in the Maipo valley. From the beginning they specialised mainly in creating wines from Bordeaux grape varieties. In 1996, the family decided to label and export Chile's first Carmenere from the renowned vineyard of Alto de Piedras. Today, the winery combines the experience of the family's third generation - represented by Pietro, Marco and Remo De Martino - with the dynamism and vision of the already-incorporated fourth generation, where Marco Antonio and Sebastián De Martino, together with the winemakers Marcelo Retamal and Eduardo Jordán, are leading the winery's new projects.

Produced with grapes from two different vineyards in the Maipo Valley: one in the Isla de Maipo area and the other located in the foothills of the Coastal Mountain Range. This is 100% Carmenere (unusual), made with indigenous yeasts, aged for 16 months in old French oak barrels, and just lightly filtered without fining.

Fresh and intense with notes of white pepper and plum, which are balanced by sweet aromas of vanilla. A pleasant acidity fills the palate, with well-structured tannins.

£67.50

De Martino SV Old Bush Vines Malbec Limavida 2011 (1x75cl)

Awarded 92 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their October 2017 edition article on Malbec in South America (see blue link below).

De Martino Limavida OBV Malbec 2011 - October 2017 Decanter review

The De Martino family came from Italy in 1934 and settled in Chile in Isla de Maipo (D.O. Maipo). At the beginning they specialised mainly in creating wines from Bordeaux grape varieties. In 1996, the family decided to label and export Chile's first Carmenere from the renowned vineyard of Alto de Piedras. Today, having reached 80 years of history, the winery combines the experience of the family's third generation - represented by Pietro, Marco and Remo De Martino - with the dynamism and vision of the already incorporated fourth generation, where Marco Antonio and Sebastián De Martino, together with the winemakers Marcelo Retamal and Eduardo Jordán, are leading the winery new projects.

85% Malbec, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon/Carmenere. Manually harvested, gently pressed before cold maceration. Fermented in stainless steel tanks, left on skins for 60 days most fermentation. Malolactic fermentation, indigenous yeast. The wine was aged in oak barrels for fully 2 years.

Deep and intense, purplish red in colour. The nose displays black cherry, cedar and rosemary, well balanced with the oak from the foudre. The palate shows great freshness and rich acidity, giving for a persistent wine with ripe tannins.

£20.75

De Martino Viejas Tinajas Cinsault 2015 (6x 75cl)

Awarded 92 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their April 2017 edition review of Chile (see blue link below).

 

De Martino Viejas Tinajas Cinsault 2015 - April 2017 Decanter review

 

The De Martino family came from Italy in 1934 and settled in Chile in the Maipo valley. From the beginning, they specialised mainly in creating wines from Bordeaux grape varieties. In 1996, the family decided to label and export Chile's first Carmenere from the renowned vineyard of Alto de Piedras. Today, the winery combines the experience of the family's third generation - represented by Pietro, Marco and Remo De Martino - with the dynamism and vision of the already-incorporated fourth generation, where Marco Antonio and Sebastián De Martino, together with the winemakers Marcelo Retamal and Eduardo Jordán, are leading the winery's new projects.

De Martino resurrects an old winemaking tradition of using large earthenware jars, known as amphorae or tinajas, that is deeply rooted in rural Chilean winemaking culture to create this all-natural wine. The fruit is cultivated from an unirrigated vineyard in the heart of the coastal mountain region of the Itata Valley located 400 kilometers south of Santiago and 22 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean. Viejas Tinajas, meaning “old amphorae,” is fermented and aged in 100-year-old amphorae that have been rescued by the De Martino family.  The winery does not intervene or disrupt the process at all.  A lovely fresh nose of red currant jam and violets is well defined. The palate is medium in body with crisp red currant and dark cherry accented by touches of fig and marmalade.

£87.90

Falernia Carmenere 2015 (1x75cl)

Fairly deep red with a pale rim. Very sweet ripeness on the nose, possibly red gooseberry jam and a hint of green pepper. Ripe fruit on palate with soft texture.
