      The sister company of Caliterra, Errazuriz Estate was founded by Don Maximiano Errázuriz in 1870 who planted the first French grape varieties in the Aconcagua Valley. His descendant, the charismatic Eduardo Chadwick renown for his Sena blend and tireless promotion of Chilean wines runs the company today. Fermented in stainless steel tanks, 70% of this wine was aged for 7 months in French oak barrels.

      A terrific introduction to Chilean Carmenere that combines the varietal's richness with its trademark tobacco overlay.

      Displays outstanding depth of colour, an impenetrable inky black at its core with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Aromas of blackcurrant and liquorice have a distinct tobacco overlay with notes of smoky black olive and spicy dried herbs also present. Medium to full in body, the palate is richly flavoured with blackcurrant and liquorice fruits which are interwoven with tobacco, spicy cedar and earthy black olive characters. Fleshy mouthfeel finishing with ever so slightly chalky yet fine grained tannins, good freshness and a refined aftertaste. Super value.
      Drink over the next 3-4 years.

                      Chateau Lafite Rothschild is one of the five Great Growths of Bordeaux, and amongst the world's most expensive bottles of wine. Not content with the success of just one vineyard, over the last 30 years, the owners of Chateau Lafite, Domaines Barons de Rothschild, have made strategic acquisitions around the globe, selecting specific sites that possess the terroir required to produce exciting New World wines with Lafite Rothschild's unique First Growth stamp. One of their first new world ventures was that of Los Vascos in Chile’s Colchagua Valley.

                      The 2017 Côtes du Roussillon Villages Les Vignes de Bila Haut reminds me of an impressive St Joseph (despite having lots of Grenache in the blend) with its black raspberry, white pepper, and leafy herb aromas and flavors. It's seamless, elegant, and balanced, with both acidity and richness. Put this in a blind lineup of Northern Rhônes and shock your friends. Drink 2018-2025.

                          Produced from organically farmed vineyards in Uclés (Castile, Spain), managed as an integrated ecosystem and studded with centenary oak trees. The continental climate with sunny days and cool nights allow intense fruit and strong varietal definition, while retaining freshness. Maceration lasts for 8-10 days to achieve a balanced style without excessive extraction. No oak is used to achieve a pure expression of high-altitude Tempranillo. Expect a very versatile, medium-bodied food wine, excellent with tapas, grilled meat and pasta. 14% Alc./Vol.

                                                A legend in the Spanish wine industry, interestingly, Miguel Torres was also responsible for the re-invigoration of the Chilean wine industry in the 1980s. His model investment inspired the modernising of wineries and viticultural practices. Much like his earlier efforts in Spain, old native oak casks were replaced by stainless steel tanks and quality French and American oak barrels. Investors from the USA, Spain and France looking to establish a presence in what was clearly a unique location, followed Torres’ lead.

                                                Opaque, very deep, dark red colour with dark, crimson red hue. The nose displays scents of black cherry, dark mulberry, earth and spice. Quite full bodied and rich with a profile at the darker end of the spectrum. Generous dark plum and black cherry flavours are followed by some earth and spice. Slightly dryish but balanced tannins. Good depth with long, black cherry, dark plum and spicy earth aftertaste.

                                                      A juicy Spanish quaffer that slips down the gullet with ridiculous ease.

                                                      Deep dark red core with black tinged edges and a bright crimson purple hue. Freshly crushed ripe dark cherry and plum scents meld into some earthy incense like notes and spice. Light to medium bodied the palate is filled with succulent ripe dark cherry and raspberry flavours which sit over a backdrop of earthy incense like characters and spice. Juicy textural feel with soft fine grained tannins. Finishes with an aftertaste of ripe dark raspberries, dark cherries, earthy incense and spice.
                                                      Drink over the next 2-3 years.

                                                        Opaque black dark red core with a dark purple red hue. Pronounced ripe dark raspberry, plum and Morello cherry aromas jump from the glass with liquorice, subtle scorched earth and spicy dried herb scents ensuing. Rich, juicy and slightly chewy in its mouthfeel the palate is filled with dark raspberry, Morello cherry and liquorice fruits over a back drop of earth and spicy dried herbs. Finishes dry with a lick of fresh acidity, slightly chewy tannins and a medium length aftertaste.
