The Oddbins Take

Another major minor-miracle in the Oddbins range and a regular member of our bestsellers list, this is a red that keeps the customer in search of good value very satisfied indeed. Minor, because of its diminutive price tag but very major when it comes to what you get for your money. This Chilean red's distinction is its refinement and understatement. A kind of light, softness with a freshness and vitality that easily puts it next to baby Clarets for class, balance and great food-friendliness.

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.
