ERRAZURIZ Aconcagua Alto Carmenère 2019
The ’Specialities’ range from Errázuriz offers unparalleled value for money. If you want world-class single-varietal wines with crystal clarity then look no further.
The Aconcagua Alto Carmenère benefits from the cool Andean breezes and the gravelly soils of the region. Together they combine to create a textbook take on this classic grape variety. Crème de cassis liqueur green bell pepper black cherry blackberry smoked paprika fig violet peppery spice nettle tobacco coffee bean soy sauce and dark chocolate. The balance of umami richness and fruity freshness is perfect with the ample acidity keeping the full body from becoming overwhelming. An exquisite demonstration of how good Chilean Carmenère can be.
Deeply satisfying this Carmenère would be a fine match for comfort food. And that smoked paprika note would play beautifully with chipotle-spiced stews or beans romesco sauce or anything roasted.
Chilean wine is considered ‘New World’ by many. But when you learn that Don Maximiano Errázuriz Valdivieso founded Viña Errázuriz in 1870 it makes a bit of a nonsense of that outdated moniker. Today under the watchful eye of Eduardo Chadwick Claro Errázuriz is one of Chile’s most iconic and one of the world’s most famous wineries.
