K&L Notes

Derek Mossman began Garage Wine Company at a time when there were relatively few smaller, family owned wineries in Chile. He not only started his venture to produce hand made wines on a human scale, but also to buy fruit from and support farmers with great quality fruit throughout the country. Along the way, he also banded together a group of like minded wineries to create MOVI, a platform to promote smaller production wineries in Chile. Vigno is one of Garage's most special wines, a single vineyard wine which celebrates old vine, dry farmed Carignane. It is fantastic red wine, and one of southern Chile's iconic wines for sure.

    We worked our supplier connections pretty hard to get as many bottles of this sub 3,000 bottle production gem of a wine as we could. Vigno represents an association of growers who source old vine Carignane from Chile's Secano interior section of the Maule Valley, an area which, for Carignane lovers (count me in) arguably produces the best examples of this grape variety in the world, right up there with bottlings of Priorat which often sell for nearly three figure prices. Derek's 2014 VIGNO is a masterpiece of the genre. It opens with one of those explosively bright noses where you can smell the freshness and acidity, a fine beginning to be sure. The palate shows incredibly energetic, lively black cherry and wild berry fruit flavors, a freshness that betrays the low 3.2 pH, as well as the fresh granite, quartz and red clay soils in this section of Chile's coastal range. It is one of the few wines I've tasted recently that I simply could not spit out - it's that good, and I suggest you buy some before we run out.While we secured, by my calculation, about 10% of the production, as I mentioned earlier on that is still a very tiny amount!
