Colchagua Valley Cabernet Franc 2016

Oh hey this is fabulous. In a “I wouldn’t necessarily know it’s cab f” way. It is light on its feet but not in the spritzy way like last night’s was. Lithe not light. But it’s dancing on a rug as opposed to a slippery floor. Silky ripe tannins that don’t grip until the last moment. Bright cherries. Bits and bobs of pepper. A bit of earth and herb. It’s not especially complex but it fits thoroughly in “refreshing red”. I’m here for it. — 9 days ago

Millahue Apalta Red Blend 2011

Yet again South America shows off its prowess in wine making. Rich mouth feel with lots of red fruit. Fragrant nose and a little higher acidity. Beautiful wine — 12 days ago

Purple Angel Colchagua Valley Carménère Petit Verdot 2013

Oak is heavy on the nose and palate. Intense Dark chocolate, cocoa and violets just jump from the glass. No green notes or typical Carmenere pyrazines. — 12 days ago

Cellar Selection Canto de Apalta Red Blend 2012

Blend of basically equal parts carmanere, cab sauv, Merlot, & Syrah from Chile. Black fruits, medium tannins, savory finish. Great with steak! — 2 months ago

Gran Reserva Colchagua Valley Merlot 2017


Lovely Merlot that delivered a smooth, subtle and a very slightly sweet glass.

Lots of fruit cherry, plum and bursting with a delightful black berry aroma.

A real treat considering this was just £7.99 from Majestic.
