THE GARAGE WINE CO. began with the idea of making wine on a small and personal scale, by hand, for the family, before finally selling to customers. Now these exciting, terroir-driven wines offer a distinct point of difference to mainstream Chilean brands and focus on the country’s potential to produce wine that can rival the best in the world. In 2009 the Garage Wine Co became involved with 11 other small independent producers to form the ‘Movement of Independent Vintners.’
Garage Wine Co. Lot 35 Carignan 2011: Amazingly exotic, with a flashing deep-violet colour and alluring flavours of sweet raspberry, black cherry, clove and balsamic vinegar. Very intense and pure, with gorgeous freshness acting as a nice counterpoint to the sweet fruit. Awesome juice. Sip on its own or partner with crispy Chinese duck or lamb chops and chilli jam. €29
Garage Wine Co. Perverso Cabernet Sauvignon: Vivid ruby hue with a thrilling bouquet of blackberries, mocha, black pepper and star anise. Expansive wash, brimming with dark cherry, violet and nutmeg characters. Richness and opulence balanced by silky acidity and dusty, sweet tannins. Just gorgeous! Have with rack of lamb and Moroccan spices, beef empanadas or aged cheddar. €18.40 on promo until April 30th
