2019 Cabernet Sauvignon, Tierra Alta, Central Valley, Chile
Bursting with red and blackcurrent fruits, this is a really soft and pure Cabernet with gentle tannins and a hint of green pepper on the finish. Cool herby flavours mingle with red fruits and a nice touch of acidity.
13% ABV. Matches well with herby meat dishes, sausages or stuffed baked red peppers.
"Chile’s Central Valley has enough sun to fully ripen the grape yet cooling breezes from the Ocean to give freshness. The nose is bright the start of the palate fresh with a mix of bilberry and bramble. Rich and ripe in the middle cassis and black cherry fleshy and supple and although at the back it feels fresher the finish has richness and depth. The combination of flavours makes for an easy dinking glass of red its richness suits beef and venison yet there is enough freshness for lamb and pork." Derek Smedley MW (2018)
