Chile has in recent years proven that it has an impressive breadth as a wine country. Producers big and small go exploring in all directions to find the perfect spot to grow vines. Here are three suggestions for good summer drinking from Chile:
Emiliana VIGNO 2015 comes from Maule. It is made from 100% carignan on “dry-farmed” land (no irrigation). Emilian is probably the world’s biggest biodynamic winery. (around 16 euro)
Santa Cruz de Coya 2017 comes from the south, from Bío Bío and is made by the talented Roberto Henriques. The grape is país, the original grape that arrived with the conquistadores in the 16th century. It has recently been “rediscovered” and become trendy among young winemakers.
Garage Wine Maule Valley 2013 comes from Maule. It is made from cabernet franc and also without irrigation. The winemaker is the passionate Derek Mossman Knapp.
