Good value Chile, £75
11:47am Tuesday 8th March 2011 in Wine offers
Chilean wines are all about clean, fruity and ultimately drinkable wines that are ideal with or without food and are great value for money.
Always a favourite wine country for wine personality Oz Clarke, we have included one of his Chilean selections from his Top 250 Wine Guide.
The Good value Chile case costs £75 and includes three bottles each of the following four wines.
Nostros Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2010, Casablanca Valley: A delicious white wine bursting with aromas of cut grass, lemon zest and gooseberries. Refreshingly crisp and dry on the palate with lively acidity and vibrant flavours of ripe tropical fruits.
Kintu Cabernet Sauvignon 2009, Maule Valley: Bursting with fresh ripe flavours of blackcurrant, hints of mint leaf and a lovely touch of cedarwood and smoke — delicious.
Rio Alto Classic Merlot 2010, Aconcagua Valley: “Rich, dark red plum and raisin stew. This is an excellent chunky, chewy red. You get some real sense of ripeness through that slight raisin taste, but the basic flavour is big, broad, plummy and fresh.” Oz Clarke.
Montes Malbec 2009, Colchagua Valley: Aurelio Montes is the man credited with being the first to promote quality wine in Chile and it certainly shows in this ultra juicy Malbec which has complex layers of red berry fruit, spice and toast — superb with beef especially.
