- This is to a mid-range supermarket wine what a monster truck is to a fiat panda. It's a big complex beast of a wine. Oh, and the guy who made it also makes one of Chile's most famous, and expensive wines.
- If you could get hold of one of his famous wines, you'd be paying over £30 a bottle. Luckily for you, you can buy his very own, non-famous, creation from us at a much more reasonable price.
- If you ever wanted to invest in a Naked wine to lay down, this is the one. Jean-Pascal's wines get even better with bottle age.
- Connie has created this absolute blockbuster of a red by combining Chile's most popular red grape varieties, Cabernet, Carmenere and Merlot.
- It's packed with big, bold, blackcurrant fruit that hits the mouth like a fruit bomb. Underneath it has a little bit of sweet, dark chocolate that gives it a delicious, mouthwatering smoothness. It's like turbo Ribena for grown ups.
- Beware. This is very drinkable stuff. Very, very drinkable. So don't be surprised if it disappears from your glass rather quickly!
- Luca left the humdrum of corporate winemaking to make exciting wines just like this. He says, if left to nature, vineyards have personalities that shine through in their wines. Soil, location, even the local weather, make each vintage unique.
- With Naked funding behind him, he’ll be able to focus 100% on what he’s best at, making those wines taste as delicious as possible.
- Luca's Cinsault Carinena is juicy and refreshing red with bags of complexity. Lip-smackingly delicious and you keep coming back for more
Luca’s ruby red blend of Carignan and Grenache comes from gnarly 80-year old vines in the rolling hills of the Maule Valley.
Luca aims to produce wines that are as natural as possible, that really express the grapes and the place they were grown.
Dark and rich, Luca’s Sabatico has nice smooth tannins with years of ageing potential ahead of it. If you like characterful Spanish reds like Priorat or Montsant you’ll love this
- Top Chilean winemaker, Felipe, wanted to introduce Angels to the humble Pais grape; a variety that has decked the tables of Chilean homes for centuries, and chose to pair it with relative newbie to his country’s vineyards; Syrah.
- Angel funding allowed him to withstand pressures from the big corporations and produce this unique blend, with the ripe aromas of Syrah and cherry flavours of Pais uniting beautifully to form beautifully smooth and smokey wine.
- This little grape has a growing following so sit back, relax and enjoy, safe in the knowledge that you are drinking a wine that’s full of both history and innovation.
WE'RE NOT SURE
- Carignan was planted on a large scale in Maule in the 1940s in an effort to improve the region’s wines after a catastrophic earthquake. Years went by before a small band of quality-mad independent winemakers realised that the old vines had grown into something truly special.
- Andreas took those precious 50 year-old vines to make this spectacular drop that's everything you’d expect from a high-end, super-posh Chilean fine wine. It’s rich, it’s intensely fruity, and it’s scandalously complex and interesting.
- Last year's vintage deservedly picked up a Silver medal at the prestigious IWC competition. This vintage picked up 94 points in Wine Advocate magazine "The bottle looks beautiful, the wine tastes beautiful, what's there not to love?" ...as high-fives go, it's got bells on!
Irene pours all of her talent, care and attention into every wine she creates, and this is no exception.
Taking grapes from her favourite vineyard she has crafted the ultimate field blend. A dollop of Syrah, a drop of Petit Verdot, a soupçon of Cabernet Sauvignon and a smidge of Carignan make a beautifully light, simple tipple. Perfect for midweek sipping.
An easy, everyday wine full of bright, fresh blackberries, blackcurrants and cherries.
