B.P.Rothschild Maipo Mapu Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon

Geography: ,





Price: ¥95

We would have to say that The Rothschild forays into Chile have been great for the consumer. They are in the Mapu range producing the golden bullet wines we seek: low cost wines punching above their weight in a sturdy, consistent and agreeable way.

This is from a German website

“Beautiful dark red. Aromas of black currant, blackberries and blueberries. The taste is fresh and elegant, with round and soft tannins that gives the wine excellent balance. The long and expressive finish rounds off a wonderful fruity and powerful wine.”

The site also goes on to say that mechanically harvested grapes are fermented at high temperature in stainless steel barrels for a ‘long time’ (to protect good balanced tannin structure) then spends 7 to 8 months ageing in stainless steel; this wine receives no oak at all.

So, a lot of fruit, jammy almost with a hint of  mint;  no tobacco or cigar box notes. Its inexpensive to find out for yourself.

Me, I thought that for the price it was absolutely lovely, easy to drink and had enough interest to keep me satisfied. Great value in Chile at the moment.
