The Oddbins Take

Chile does a number of things well: it does some pretty nice mountains and it can do miraculous escapes from mines very well but, here at Oddbins, we rather like them for their oh-so affordable, brilliant, fruit-forward wines. They have a particular knack with Cabernet Sauvignon, from which they have coaxed, in this particular instance, winning aromas of black cherries and berries and a palate of bilberries, cassis and mature blackberries, supported by soft and elegant tannins.

For over 180 years, seven generations of the Pedregal family have been producing wines in the Loncomilla Valley. The Loncomilla crosses east-west between the Andes and the Pacific ocean, some 220 kilometres south of Santiago in the Maule region.

An attractive red colour, with soft purplish tones, this Cabernet displays lifted flavours of black cherries and berries aromas that mix with sweet notes of chocolate and mocha. On the palate, it is balanced, with a velvety texture. Bilberries, cassis and mature blackberries appear, supported by soft and elegant tannins that leave a long and pleasant sensation.
