The Oddbins Take

Well well well. We really do have something to shout about here. Nuevo Mundo is, *drumroll, please*, the very first carbon neutral wine in South America. In a continent where loggers are tearing up forests at a rate of knots, it is inspiring to see a winery shining a green light for Chile. Hats off. And bottoms up, too, because this is one hell of a bargain at £8.50. It’s ripe and plummy, as you’d expect from a Carmenere, but hangs onto a freshness and elegance that keeps it balanced and interesting.
