Bisquertt Riserva Petirrojo Carménère

Bisquertt Riserva Petirrojo Carménère 2014 $18

Chilean’s had no idea why much of their merlot tasted so different to the rest until a canny Ampelographer (google it) came along and said “that’s because it’s carménère”. Previously one of the 6 varieties permitted in red Bordeaux, this Colchagua-grown example oozes black berryfruit, tobacco-box oak, dried herb and smoky, earthy characters.

Sip with: short ribs with chimichurri sauce
