Cono Sur, Silencio Cabernet Sauvignon, Maipó Alto, Maipó Valley, Chile, 2011
Silencio Cabernet Sauvignon
Platinum: Best Chilean Red Bordeaux Varietals over £15
98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Carmenère
Beautiful and precise nose with ripe raspberry and blackcurrant complemented by herbal hints, complex violet and a light, lifted touch of red rose. Delicious flavours of black olive and dansom jam with judicious oak and a slightly salty touch. Fantastic purity of fruit, an iconic type of wine.
