Mayu Carménère Appassimento 2018, Chile

Mayu Carménère Appassimento 2018, Chile

Rate this product
Majestic Exclusive
ABV 14.50%

Elqui Valley is Chile’s most extreme wine region – nearly 5000 feet above sea level, it has 300 days of summer and such clear skies that it's famous for observatories. It’s a tough place to make wine – so it’s no surprise that there’s only one commercial winery here. Winemaker Giorgio Flessati’s Italian roots have heavily influenced the way they make wine. In fact, this is the first appassimento Carménère in the world, made by leaving the grapes to dry on the vine until the flavours are much more pronounced. Black pepper. Plums. Figs. It’s incredibly rich, with plenty of black-fruit flavours and subtle sweetness from the dried grapes. Great with tagine.

From the description, this wine seemed to have everything I like about wine. What could possibly go wrong? Well I don't know, but I found the wine to be undrinkable. Literally - I had to pour it down the sink (a first for me). Avoid at all costs.

Apassimento Carmere from Chile : who would have thunk it ! ? But it works ! Needed 2 hours to open up, and than went brilliantly with my Crspy “roasted”Chinese Duck + pancakes- Hoisin sauce and veggie bits. 5 stars because it is a bargain @ 9 quid.

Bought a bottle to try after reading the description on back but did not enjoy from the nose to taste real aweful bad old socks.

Sounds like it was corked
Had mine with Chinese roasted duck- Hoisin sauce is a challenge for any wine, needed 2 hours to breathe and then was great.

Perfectly acceptable, smooth, concentrated, well made, but too sweet in my opinion. Santa Rita Medalla Real is better, especially if you can find some with some age.

Stick with the Italian Pasqua 'PassionSentimento' Passimento red or white much better
