Our Chilean representative in the Best In Show selection may perhaps raise eyebrows -- but it shouldn’t, since the value is outstanding and it also underscores the revaluation of Chilean vine resources and terroir potential which is underway in the country. This blend of Cinsault, Pais and Carignan comes from Itata in the south of Chile, formerly a bulk-wine-growing region but now a source of some of the country’s most intriguing old-vine, dry-grown fruit. It’s dark in colour with warm, sweet, haunting and undemonstrative aromas; the palate is supple yet intense, concentrated and tenacious. Food-friendly, harmoniously ripe and naturally articulated, this is a great buy.
