Tasting Notes

Made by Vina Ventisquero exclusively for Tesco, this is a brilliant blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere.

It brings together the classic Chilean Cabernet fruit - think freshly picked blackberries - with the more unusual chocolate-like character of Camernere.

And what a happy union it is! Even more so when matched with spicy beef dishes.

Storage Instructions

This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 3 years

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2012 vintage, Olly Smith said: "Intense berry-fruit aroma, packed with concentrated, full fruit flavour."

Olly Smith - Event Magazine, Mail on Sunday 02/06/2013

Of the 2012 vintage, Jane MacQuitty said: "Brilliant value, with Cabernet's more austere blackcurrant flavours filled out with verdant raspberry-rich Carmenere."

Background

History

The winery is one of the most modern in Chile and also the first winery in Chile with a certification to offset its CO2 emissions. Kulapelli is the name for the “three spirits” who used to inhabit the Maipo valley where the grapes are now grown. Alejandro Galaz, Chief Winemaker at Vina Ventisquero, has been working there since 2002. His experience is represented in the quality and complexity found in this Finest* blend. It showcases the elegance of the wines that the Maipo Valley produces.
