This is a clear and bright wine of an attractive pale yellow color with greenish touches that show its youth.

De Gras Sauvignon Blanc Reserva 2017 (1x 75cl)

“The philosophy is to create modern Chilean wines that offer exceptional quality and value. We have all the equipment and technology, but it’s the people that make the difference. Crafting wine is an art in which you must use all your senses,” says Hernan Gras, President and Winemaker at MontGras. Feedback from the experts would indicate the success of this approach.

Straw yellow in colour with delicate citrus and melon aromas and a hint of fresh cut grass. Well balanced melon, citrus and herbal notes with a crisp acidity that makes this wine racy and refreshing. Good volume that fills the palate giving a pleasant and lingering finish.

This wine drinks very well with shellfish - particularly prawns or lobster and will compliment salads, club sandwiches and pasta, particularly with chicken or ham.

De Martino Gallardia Itata 2016 - Feb 2018 Decanter review

The philosphy of the De Martino family is simple but effective: "From the beginning of our winery in 1934, we have worked to create wines that represent us as a family. Our philosophy is summarized in creating wines that reflect their origin in the purest way possible, bringing origin and balance together. Our agricultural practices are based on organic principles and timely harvest, with the aim of achieving balanced wines. Our wines are exclusively fermented with native yeasts, disregarding enological components that may alter their personality. Likewise, aging is made in stainless steel, concrete, 5.000 litres foudres, used barriques (in average ten years old), so that the imprint of our wines reflects their origin without alterations."

This white wine is made using 70% Moscatel and 30% Corinto grapes from vines that were planted in 1905.

De Martino Muscat Viejas Tinajas 2015 - January 2017 Decanter review

De Martino Muscat Viejas Tinajas 2015 - April 2017 Decanter review

Viejas Tinajas comes from the coastal vineyards of the Itata Valley located in the southern region of Chile; it is the cradle of the country's viticulture, with vines dating back to 1551. The area is characterized by a coastal climate, with high levels of rainfall, rolling hills and granite soils. A sustainable agriculture, including dry farming and ploughing with horses are practiced in the vineyards. This wine is fermented and aged in centennial earthenware jars (tinajas or amphorae), thereby rescuing the tradition of the first Chilean vine growers.

A remarkable ochre hue in the glass gives way to vibrant grapey aromas, floral notes and hints of honey. There is an impressive weight and on the palate, where the tantalising Muscat character comes through, followed by a touch of earthiness on the finish. So expressive and inviting with a nice tannin structure. This has real potential as an alternative aperitif or as an accompaniment for cheese.

Falernia PX Elqui Valley 2016 - January 2018 Decanter review

Falernia Sauvignon Blanc 2017 (1 x 75cl)

Founded in 1998, Viña Falernia has built a reputation as a high quality winery. Owner Aldo Olivier Gramola created Viña Falernia with his cousin Giorgio Flessati, a seasoned winemaker from the Trentino region in Northern Italy. Located in the Elqui Valley, Falernia remains one of Chile’s northernmost wine estates at 530 km North of Santiago. The Elqui Valley provides natural advantages to the growing process including dramatic contrasts between night/day temperatures and high quality of light. Viña Falernia spans over 320 hectares of vineyards, with the territories being divided into 4 distinct vineyards. First, the Titon vineyard lies at an altitude of 350 meters above sea level, 18 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean. The second and third sites, Puclaro and Pedregal respectively, move further into the valley and reach up to 560 meters above sea level. Finally, the fourth vineyard nestled in the Andes Mountains, Huanta, continues as one of the highest in the world at 2070 meters above sea level.

After the grapes had been picked by hand, they were immediately pressed (without crushing first), and then cold macerated for 12 hours at low temperature. The juice was clarified, stored on the lees for 72 hours then fermented in stainless steel tanks at temperature between 15-16ºC. Aging on the fine lees for 4/5 months with battonage and then blended, before finishing and bottling.

The Falernia Sauvignon Blanc has a brilliant yellow colour. The aromas are intense and are reminiscent of figs, elderflowers, grapefruit and sage. It has good flavours with citrus and melon notes, acidity and long crisp finish on the palate - it is a very opulent wine.

It works well with seafood and asparagus soup.

Laberinto Las Cenizas Sauvignon Blanc, 2016 (1x75cl)

Rafael Tirado is the creator and winemaker of the boutique Laberinto, based in a stunning location overlooking Lake Colbun, Maule. Sited at the foothills of the Andes, 600m above sea level, this is considered the coolest spot in Chile, with wines of a naturally lower pH than the Leyda valley. High-density plantings on volcanic ash and clay impart an undeniable minerality to Rafael’s Sauvignon Blanc, which is gaining something of a cult following. The unusual curves (or labyrinths) of the vineyards - hence Laberinto - were planted to achieve more complexity through varying exposures of the fruit to the sun.

The grapes were hand harvested from vines that are now over 20 years old. The vineyard sits on soil comprising of volcanic ash (cenizas is ashes in Spanish).  After fermentation and pressing the grapes spend between four and six hours macerating in the press. The wine stayed in contact with its fine lees for three months before bottling.

A fresh profile with minerality, poise, and an intense yet subtle nose of citric, herbal and wet stone aromas. The palate is sharp and precise, vibrant and very focused with very high acidity that makes you salivate, it doesn''t dry your palate, it makes you want to keep drinking. Its very tasty, ending with a mineral, supple, almost saline note. It''s as if it were made out of stones, not grapes!

This wine goes particularly well with grilled seabass, asparagus and chips, young cheeses and Asian cuisine with herbs and lime.

Montes Alpha Casablanca Chardonnay 2015 (1x75cl)

Montes was established in 1988 by Aurelio Montes, Douglas Murray, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, with the aim to produce the best wines in Chile from the best regions . We have long admired Montes and what they have done for Chilean wine over the past three decades. The Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon, first produced in 1987, broke the mould for premium wines in Chile. Since then, Alpha has gone from being a wine to being the core range in the Montes portfolio. The grapes and sites are carefully selected in order to ensure varietal integrity and complexity . Viticulture is hands on and individual rather than mechanical and industrial. The result is a range of wines that offer superb value within the premium wine market - whether from Chile or anywhere else.

The vineyards are in the Aconcagua Costa region, where the proximity to the Pacific Ocean and influence of cool sea breezes produce the perfect conditions to enable slow and full ripening. The variable sandy to sandy-loam soils lend complexity to the wine, with great cool-climate typicity. All the vineyards are vertically trained and drip-irrigated. The clusters are evenly distributed on the vines, which keeps the grapes well-ventilated and healthy.

The grapes are hand-picked early in the morning then carefully selected and destemmed. The grapes are processed in one of three different ways - full-cluster pressed, destemmed then pressed, or cold-soaked for several hours. These techniques enable diverse extraction of aromas from the skins. The juice obtained from pressing and maceration is piped to a static decantation tank where it remains for 24 to 48 hours, then is racked to a fermentation tank. It is then inoculated with cerevisiae yeast beginning fermentation, which lasts around 25 days at 13º - 14ºC. Once complete, 80% of the wine is sulfited to stop the action of the yeast and protect the wine from oxidation. Lactic bacteria is added to the remaining unsulfited wine, giving it a smoother and more voluminous palate. 40% of the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.

A deep golden yellow colour. Standout ripe tropical fruit notes of pineapple, banana, apricot, and asparagus and artichoke hearts typical of coastal-climate wines. The 12 months in French oak confers notes of toast and vanilla and heightens the lactic butterscotch tones. The palate has enjoyably acidic, with a fruity persistence.
