Bodegas Alina Emblema Cabernet Sauvignon: Wine Man Pick

September 19, 2012
Bodegas Alina Emblema Cabernet Sauvignon

First sampled in 2011: an instant hit. Staggeringly good value. An every day red wine of…forest berries & spices on a rich background of leather & liquorice. Sweet healthy tannins. Vegetal nuances typical of this variety at this price point and above and yet (Still) retailing elsewhere for around ¥138. That’s us, I guess: Generous to a fault. Grab a case; watch it evolve for very little outlay.

Hemisferio Cabernet Sauvignon: Wine Man Pick

November 22, 2011
Miguel Torres Chile Hemisferio Cabernet Sauvignon

Intense ruby colour. Exquisite aroma of wild berries and spices over a rich background of leather and liquorice. The fruit tannins and vegetable notes stand out on the palate.

If I am not mistaken, there is a dollop of Carmenère in this Cabernet Sauvignon and a fine blend that makes it too. The luminosity is there and the sweet sweet spicy notes.

Hemisferio Carmenère: Wine Man Pick

November 22, 2011
Miguel Torres Chile Hemisferio Carmenere

Many wine writers have been reporting that Carmenère will be the next ‘big thing’. Maybe. It screams of ‘Marketers speak’, of which one is always wary. This grape will become a household name, however; and this is a very reasonable place to make first acquaintance. Supports the Chilean Patagonian wilderness.

A lovely Chilean Cabernet with that ‘close to ¥100’ attraction. Intense deep dark ruby in colour.

San Medin Sauvignon Blanc

November 29, 2011
Miguel Torres Chile San Medin Sauvignon Blanc

A classy Sauvignon Blanc made in a style closer to an entry level AOC French style than a great NZ Marlborough (guess which I prefer). But this Chilean San Medin has an advantage over a similarly priced French Sauvignon Blanc (if you can find one at this price in SH) in that it tastes of something.

The power in this particular Fair Trade Chilean wine is breathtaking (especially the 2012).
