American oak aging adds a gloss of smoothness to this rich concentrated style. Attractive aromas and flavours of dark plum with hints of chocolate make it a very satisfying wine. Because of it's rich red fruit and smooth finish it will lift the tangy flavours of the goat cheese.
What food to match it with:
Due to its smooth mellowness this is a great all rounder with 'easy food' such as roast or grilled meats. Excellent with spaghetti Bolognese.
Vina Maipo was founded in 1948. Grapes are sourced from the renowned Maipo Valley. Once referred to as a grape growing paradise due to ideal climate conditions and soil.
