LFE 900 Single Vineyard, Colchagua Valley, Chile, 2008, 14.5% abv.

A wine to love with steak!  Yes!  In honour of Andrew’s 15th birthday, out came this great red Chilean blend.

From a  single vineyard wine from Chile’s Colchagua Valley poised at 900m above sea level, this is a delicious wine.

It shows a ruby coloured core moving to a wide and pale ruby rim with aromas of black and red fruit, bramble, peppery spice and oak with tobacco leaves.

On the palate, it’s dry and has average acidity with smooth and dusty medium tannins.  The medium plus alcohol and medium body support flavour of bramble, blackberries, ripe red and Damson plums.  There’s a hint of hard raspberry with green pepper and cedar touched with black peppery spice.  A long finish accompanies this pleaser.

WSET Very Good –  supple and juicy, fresh and drinking now. Don’t lay down – enjoy this blend of Petite Syrah, Malbec, Syrah, Carménère and Cabernet Sauvignon.
