Video Round-Up: Chocolate loaded Carménère

Video One: Santa Alicia Reserva Carménère 2008
You’d be right in thinking there’s a whiff of chocolate of this gold medal winning Carménère, but we can assure you the only ingredient is grape juice. If you’re a fan of Merlot, you should like Carménère, and this is one of the best available at normal retail price, never mind with 20% off for the month of March.

Video Two: Sierra Grande Sauvignon Blanc 2009
A refreshing organic Sauvignon Blanc from Chile, with those trademark tingling aromatics, crisp acidity and fresh fruit flavours. Easy drinking and a real crowd pleaser. 20% off for the month of March.
Video Three: Last Stand Shiraz 2007
The fruity Last Stand would be on the slightly lighter end of the scale, and perhaps an easier drinking style of South Australian red. One customer observed, “It’s like sitting in the arms of someone warm”.
Video Four: Long Neck Chardonnay 2009
A well-made, inexpensive Chardonnay from South Africa. The winemaker has allowed the grape itself to do most of the work, rather than indulging in the overuse of oak. Rich texture and bursting of tropical fruits.
Video Five: Ginestet Bordeaux Classique Margaux 2005
A superb food wine, the Ginestet Margaux is drinking well now, but put it down for a year or two to see it at its best. Wine from Bordeaux ’05, and this region in particular, won’t be around for too much longer!
