With winemaking techniques that date back to the 16th century, diverse terrain and a sustainable approach, Chile is one of the most exciting wine regions in the world. If you are looking for the best wines from the region then look for the word “Gran Reserva” on a bottle’s label, as it represents the highest quality and ageing in wines from the country. But what does the highest quality wine taste like? Let us find out by tasting some Gran Reserva wines from the region’s most esteemed winery- Viña Tarapacá :
Viña Tarapacá Gran Reserva White Label: This deep-coloured Cabernet Sauvignon is juicy on the palate and has aromas of ripe cherries, olives and dried herbs. This smooth and supple wine has a warm and fuzzy finish, making it perfect for Christmas.
Viña Tarapacá Gran Reserva Etiquta Negra or Black Label: This intense ruby-coloured Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of blackberries and cassis, along with complex notes of leather, truffles and tobacco, thanks to the extended barrel-ageing. Its elegant and ripe finish makes this wine a great gift for wine enthusiasts.
Viña Tarapacá Gran Reserva Etiqueta Azul or Blue Label: This red blend has notes of plum and blackcurrant with a minerally finish. Packed with intense flavours, this wine will age beautifully over the next five years, making it a wine that you buy now and enjoy later.
