2015 MAQUIS Lien 75cl (Colchagua Valley, Chile)
Style - Elegant
Grapes - 49% Carmenere, 42% Cabernet Franc, 9% Syrah
Tasting - Chilean elegance in a glass. With aromas of fresh blackberry, an abundance of ripe red fruit and an underlying fresh herbal notes, one could think you're in walking through the Forrest of Dean in August. The palate is incredibly fresh and with lovely toasty finish.
FYI: The lizard is part of the Mapuche art. Whilst a useful fashion accessory the lizards represents - checks notes - "the power of human sexual conquest." Make of that what you will.
