THE WINE:
A spicy blend of Carménère and Petit Verdot that is balanced, and fruit-driven. Look for black cherry, blackberry and fig with earthy undertones, notes of chocolate, tobacco, tea leaves and savoury spice from the Carménère. The Petit Verdot adds another layer of ripe black fruits, plum and spice on both the nose and palate.
THE REGION:
The Curico Valley is in central Chile, south of the capital, Santiago. It’s a warm valley between the Andes and Coastal mountains. The valley has a Mediterranean climate that experiences hot days and humid cool nights ideal for growing aromatic and flavourful grapes. The soils are composed of limestone and volcanic rock which both contribute to the bold flavours in this wine.
THE FOOD:
Beef brisket, filet mignon, and BBQ lamb chops are just a few of the dishes to pair with this Chilean blend. Stuffed peppers with chorizo and rice and legume-based dishes are also an excellent match. Try with hard cheeses such as aged cheddar or pair it with 70% dark chocolate. A spicy blend of Carménère and Petit Verdot that is balanced, and fruit-driven.
