Chile

A mainstay of the restaurant black board, Chile has so much more to offer! There is now such an interesting variety of flavoursome mid-range wines as well as powerfully dense, top end stars to explore. Chile focuses on its valleys in both the Andes and coastal range to bring variety to the party…and table! From the hot Elqui Valley in the North, through Leyda and Casablanca – cooled by its sea breezes – to the Valle Central and the gravels of Maipo, Colchagua, Curicó then Maule, the areas are starting to develop their own identities. Wonderfully bright and pure, Chile has a reputation for good quality ‘entry-level’ reds which is much deserved. Great, gluggable glasses of Merlot and Carmenère are here for the taking from excellent producers such as Sutil Winery, Santa Ema and Cousiño Macul – the last two based in the classic, top performing area of Alto Maipo. Search further and you come across the more complex blends, with more than a touch of Northern Rhône coming through in the Syrah-rich reds, and a curranty claret-like edge to the Cabernet-dominant wines.
