New Wine Club Offer for September/October 2022
'Wines of Chile'
After the success of the ‘Argentina case’ last year, for this latest edition of the Wine Demystifier Wine Club we are returning to South America and the wilds of Chile. So often the go-to-country for big brand supermarket ‘value’ wines, my exploration of Chile has led to the discovery of so many great wines, many of which can’t easily be found on the High Street.
Alongside the usual tasting notes, this case will also include a 2 page educational supplement with details on Chile: looking at the unique environmental factors that make their wines so varied in style, with a spotlight on their key grapes, wine regions and a snapshot of some producers to look for.
This case includes a number of international varieties alongside lesser known and indigenous grapes. With two whites, three reds as well as a late harvest sweet wine.
For the whites we have what is currently my favourite Sauvignon Blanc – pungent, hugely aromatic and flavourful – with tropical fruit, green pepper and tomato leaf aromas, and a gorgeous saline minerality on the finish. Classy stuff. Next, we have something of a ‘marmite’ wine (no I don’t mean this literally!), the grape is Gewürztraminer – chock full of overt flavours ranging from lychee to rose, with a touch of spicy ginger and tea leaves too, it’s loud, proud and exhilarating! – a wine perfect for Asian cuisine.
Moving onto the reds, I’ve put together quite an eclectic range: first up we have a rich, plump Cabernet Sauvignon which balances fruit with aromas of tobacco, chocolate, and roasted coffee bean. Full bodied with ripe tannins, it is a real easy drinker. Then we have two wines which are very limited in availability: first up we have the indigenous Pais (only 2500 bottles produced), this wine is made from ancient vines (over 100 years old). Concentrated, fruit forward and very approachable, with juicy raspberry, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit and rounded tannins. I absolutely love the label and story behind this wine too! The final red is from Marselan – this Cabernet Sauvignon/Grenache cross is rarely found outside France, let alone in South America, but this is fabulous. Dense and intense, spicy and full bodied with plenty of ripe black fruit and a hint of olive tapenade on the finish. A real surprise this, I loved it. (Only 5000 bottles produced).
Finally, I have included a sweet wine – to show how flexible Sauvignon Blanc can be as well as how varied the climate in Chile is. This late harvest Sauvignon Blanc, produced with some noble rot (botrytized) grapes is lusciously sweet with huge concentration of flavour – think honey, topical fruit and floral orange blossom. Delicious and fabulous value too.
