In a nutshell: Certified organic, sustainably made, Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon from one of the country's top producers.
The lowdown: Grown in the Mediterranean climate of Chile's Central Valley, hand picked, and partially matured in oak barrels to soften and to give a more complex character to the wine. Aromas of blackberry and spice with a concentrated and smooth palate and flavours of cassis, plum, red fruit and herbal notes. Tannins provide characteristcal grip and structure.
When to drink: Great with strong flavoured dishes, grilled meat, or salami.
