  • 2020 Cachapoal Valley Merlot, Sanama ReservaRed Wine

    2020 Cachapoal Valley Merlot, Sanama Reserva

    £925

    From 100% estate fruit and fermented in stainless steel, this is an excellent example of modern Chilean winemaking. Flavours of fresh plum, damson and a hint of chocolate make this an excellent match with a variety of red meat.

    The Sanama wines come from vineyards in Requinoa, located on the generous alluvial soils of the Cachapoal Andes Valley. They are protected from the moderating influence of the Pacific Ocean by the coastal mountains, but the influence of the Andes ensures warm days and cool nights. This provides ideal ripening conditions for the grapes, resulting in ripe tannins and attractive perfumes.

    2018 Chateau Fayau

    £1350

    This is a very good drinking Bordeaux from the excellent 2018 vintage.

Fantastically modern and versatile Bordeaux.

    The south-facing vineyards are situated on the slopes of Cadillac.  Importantly in the modern eco-conscious world Chateau Fayau holds the Haute Valeur Environmentale certification, which officially recognises the environmental performance of winegrowers, including biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategies, managed fertiliser use and water resource management.

    2018 Cabernet Franc ‘TH’, Undurraga

    £1775 13% saving

    Head winemaker Rafael Urrejola has spent a great deal of time understanding the diversity of Chile’s vineyard sites; the result is the emblematic ‘Terroir Hunter’ range.

Catemito is located on an alluvial terrace which was formed in the Holocene period, approximately 10,000 years ago.
