Tasting note information
Chile’s Central Valley is famed for its ripe Bordeaux style reds. This velvety Carmenère (Carmenère was once common in Bordeaux) hails from the renowned Luis Felipe Edwards estate, a top family winery that leads the way in higher vineyard plantings, with impressive results. The wine takes its name from legendary Scottish naval commander Thomas Cochrane, who built a fearless reputation in the Napoleonic Wars before leaving Britain in 1818 to lead the Chilean Navy. His swashbuckling style, the inspiration for C.S. Forester’s Horatio Hornblower, helped defeat the Spanish and secure Chilean independence. It’s a tasty, moreish wine to honour such a hero. Rich plum and spice notes make it perfect with bold flavoured red meat dishes.
