CARTA VIEJA - Maule Valley

These wines are simply wonderful value for money. Made by the del Pedregal family,  the Sauvignon Blanc has excellent gooseberry flavours and the unoaked Chardonnay superb tropical fruit flavours with balancing acidity. A complete revelation is the botrytised Carta Vieja Late Harvest, a pudding wine of classic ‘noble rot’ and delicious acidity. The all new Gewurztraminer Reserva has stunning lychee fruit and a dry lingering finish – superb!

Both the basic Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are outstandingly
good with excellent black fruit flavours, and the Carmenère,
Cabernet & Syrah Reservas
are big rich oak-aged wines: highly recommended.

COUSIŇA MACUL

Visit their website

Still family owned, the famous vineyard of Cousino-Macul sits just on the
outskirts of Santiago.  We are convinced that their red wines offer all round
quality and a complexity and structure that some Chilean wines lack. 
The excellent unoaked whites are all delicious and highly rated by
Robert Parker.
Don’t miss the superb Sauvignon Gris, an unusual grape
related to the Sauvignon Blanc but even more intense in style.

Vinedos TerraNoble

Terranoble is famous for its red wines but the whites are running them close.  
The Chardonnay Reserva has a real complexity with white peach fruit and well integrated oak.

We reckon Vinedos Terranoble produces some of the finest Carmenère wines in Chile: the Carmenère Selection offers superb value for money while the stunning Gran Reserva Carmenère is packed with power and rich black hedgerow fruit flavours.

 Vina Morandé

Founded as recently as 1996, Vina Morandé has rapidly become one of the
major players in the Chilean wine trade. Innovative in style, their wine making is
constantly searching for the finest fruit in the Casablanca and Maipo valleys.
We think their Pinot Noirs are simply the best value that we have on our list but
please steer clear of the Carignan and Cbernet Franc: big, rich and complex,
I think they are both just too good to share!

Vina Casa Silva

Established in 1997 by Mario Silva, 4th generation of one of Chile’s oldest winemaking dynasties. Plot by plot, he reassembled the original vineyards, discovering new terroirs within other parts of the Colchagua Valley and concentrated on producing estate grown and bottled wines of great individual character and quality. The cool maritime climate of his coastal estate at Paredones, 6km from the Pacific, ensures extra refinement and complexity.
