Vina Maitia

Aupa Maule Valley Pipeño Red Blend 2017

Pipeño - the Chilean name for the oldest grape varietal in South America, the Pais, or Mission, grape.

Smells of light roasted cherries - and fresh leather.

This is a uniquely light wine, with heavy handed flavours - leather, farm, forest, mint, slate, deep tannins, a complex, evolving wine, and it is just a pup!
A long lingering peppercorn finish, with the strong mandarin peel acid undertones,
Yum.
With its gaining popularity, I look forward to trying other producers take on this, and the terroir they choose. Chile is such a long country with so many micro climates!

I agree Chile has some super wine to offer. Nice background. 🍷

Cornellana

Cuvée Gran Reserva Red Blend 2009

Deep royal purple colour. Almost black. Medium bodied, tastes of fresh dark plums and cassis that elegantly protrude forward. Followed by well accentuated pepper spices and mild but well refined eucalyptus. There is a definite lip smacking thickness to the wine, yet it is simultaneously so smooth. Overall it is undoubtably very elegant, yet I wonder how the spices and leathery notes would have tasted 3 years ago. Overall, extremely enjoyable. When I start asking these kind of questions, I know I like it. — 9 days ago

Another 4th Friday for the books!

Gorgeous purple in color in the glass. Reminds me of Sami Odi little wine on the nose. So floral and fruit driven! Not extracted though. Potpourri and lavender on the nose. Wow. Palate is so juicy...grape and red licorice dominant. Fruit gummies like! Syrah and Carignan Blend. Brought back from the winery in Chile courtesy of
@Jack Thompson ...thanks Jack!
