Tasting Notes

Cinsault, the French grape variety known for its juicy fruit, delicate floral qualities, low tannin and decidedly moreish character, is widely grown in Chile's Itata Valley. Here is a terrific example from American Derek Mossman, who is up to some truly interesting things on the Chilean wine scene. Whether it's dry farmed Maule Carignane, Cabernet Franc, or this delicious Cinsault, the man is making very interesting wines and raising the qualitative bar.

    Another winner from Garage Wine Company! Red plum and celery root on the nose , with rhubarb and spice on the palate. Excellent structure with a lingering, almost salty, finish. A real pleasure!

    The Itata Valley is a perfect place for Cinsault; the igneous soils give focus and add complexity. With high toned aromatics of sappy red fruits backed with subtle baking spices. Medium bodied with modest tannins and fresh acidity this is a perfect wine to get a party started with. It’s a perfect Pinot substitute when you want a little more punch without grip.
