This week our staff enjoyed a tasting of 2 of our Chilean wines, the Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere. For a quest of more knowledge of Chilean wines I recently went to Chile with my 2 daughters. The wine regions in the foothills of the Andes produces a fruit forward softer tannin style of wine.
The Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon – red and black berries accented with black pepper carries through from start to finish, a very good wine with pepper steaks and spicy pasta.
The Chilean Carmenere – deep crimson with dark cherry aroma, red fruits and berry notes running to a smoky, spicy finish with notes of cark chocolate and tobacco.
With softer tannins both of these Selection wines are good on the younger side, so a great choice for those who are starting to grow a wine collection.
