Video Round-Up: Noble Sauternes & Chilean Reds

Video One: Ginestet Bordeaux Classique Sauternes 2005
For many, this is the home of great dessert wine. Botrytis (noble rot) has caused the grapes to shrivel and concentrate the natural sugars. The result is a rich sweet wine which can be enjoyed with dessert, instead of dessert or with cheese. It was awarded a Silver Medal at the 2008 International Wine & Spirits Competition.

Video Two: Sierra Grande Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
A food-friendly red sourced from organically grown grapes, the SG Cabernet is warm and rounded, with sweet dark fruit and an attractive herbaceous edge.
Video Three: Santa Alicia Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
The Santa Alicia medal collection has swollen once again following the fantastic 2008 vintage. This inexpensive Cabernet picked up a Silver Medal at the International Wine Challenge and Gold at Mundus Vini.
Video Four: Tabalí Reserva Carménère 2007
If you’re yet to experience Chile’s adopted grape, Carménère, then what are you waiting for? This blockbuster-style red is brimming with black fruits and soft, chocolatey tannins. A masterful wine.
Video Five: Sierra Grande Merlot 2008
For an entry-level Chilean, this wine has a lot going on. Black fruit intermingles with some meaty characteristics and spicy overtones. A good, everyday drinking wine sourced from organically grown grapes.
