Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon has different nuances to Cabernets from other countries, due to ungrafted vines and different viticulture.
This wine was made from select grapes grown across Chile's Central Valley.
The colour is deep garnet red with a bouquet of blackberry and blackcurrant. This follows through to the palate where the fruit flavours are balanced with softened tannins. and is long and satisfying. An overall mouthfilling flavour and very, very moreish. The finish shows spice and pepper notes. One of the best inexpensive Chilean Cabernets we have tasted for a while.
A much lighter style of Chilean Cabernet than say Casillero del Diablo and other well-known brands so more suited to drinking in the summer.
Not seen elsewhere in the UK so a price comparison is impossible. Was £5.50 now further reduced to just £4.95 for the last few bottles.
