White and Rose Wines
Carménère may be Chile’s flagship red grape, but it has a history which stretches back to pre-phylloxera Bordeaux. When the tiny phylloxera bugs ravaged Europe in the nineteenth century, Bordeaux’s Carménère vines were a casualty. It had been a key component of some of the greatest claret in a time when the First Growth system was defined – but the vine was only saved by cuttings which had been taken to Chile. So, it’s no wonder that Santa Rita use Carménère to make this fantastically structured Gran Reserva, styled like a classic Bordeaux. The grapes are from the Colchagua Valley, famed for its exceptional red wines – especially Carménère. It’s a plush, velvety-smooth wine, packed with intense flavours of blueberry, plum and cassis. The firm tannins make this ideal with red meat.
