Tasting Note
:
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.

Interesting story:
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.
