  1. Aymura Carmenere Red Wine Chilean 2014

    Aymura Carménère 2014

    £12.75

    £12.75

    250 miles north of Santiago lies Chile's Elqui Valley, which may well have been formed by the work of singer Elkie Brooks. The area has only recently found favour with winemakers initially cautious (with only 15 days precipitation per year, there's nothing but Sunshine After the Rain, but you'd be a Fool if You Think It's Over just because of that).

    Mitigating all of that sunshine are cool night-time temperatures which means that, instead of sweet and heady Lilac Wines, you can make bold, full-bodied, complex and dark chocolate-tinged Pearls like this (enough already! - Ed).
  2. Chateau Clerc Milon Pauillac 2010

    Château Clerc Milon Pauillac 2010

    £130.00

    £130.00

    Baron Phillippe De Rothschild is not just a name on a fancy Bordeaux bottle. Along with his global success as a wine producer, he was also a Grand Prix racing car driver, writer, art patron, film producer, sailor, and poet. But what the world really remembers is his wine making innovations and his relentless pursuit of excellence. Realising Chateau Clerc Milon's quality and enormous potential he purchased this vineyard in 1970. Thus today we are treated to one of his legacies - Clerc Milon's stunning red wine. The 2010 is a full-bodied and forthright wine. Ripe red fruits, orange and chocolate notes. Framed in velvety tannins and a long finish. Rothschild was a man of many talents, but one of his best was his recognition of talent. Such as this outstanding Chateau.
  3. De Martino Legado Carménère 2014

    De Martino Legado Carmenere 2014

    £10.50

    £10.50

    Legado is Spanish for legacy, something handed down by an ancestor or a predecessor. De Martino have got this red wine spot on, but questions need to be asked about the name.

    One taste and nobody in their right mind would ever want to give it away to a member of a younger generation, however much you love them. They just wouldn't appreciate something this elegant, sophisticated, would they? Nope, we think that De Martino Stockpile Selfishly Carménére would be a far more fitting name.
  4. Oveja Negra Cabernet Franc Carmenere

    Oveja Negra Cabernet Franc Carmenère 2015

    £9.00

    £9.00

    Oveja Negra, if you hadn't gathered from the black sheep on the label, translates as 'Black Sheep' and that's exactly why we love these guys - they don't follow the herd with their wines.

    Cabernet Franc and Carmenère is an unusual blend, but it works really well - Cab Franc's light body, finesse and peppery quality balance out the fuller, more ample fruit of Carmenère. We always thought it was a good idea not to try to fit in and this is further evidence thereof. Yeah boy!

  5. Oveja Negra Sauvignon Blanc Carmenere Chile

    Oveja Negra Sauvignon Blanc Carmenère 2016

    £9.00

    £9.00

    Like when you walk into the garden after a long winter to discover lil' daffodils boldly bursting forth in search of sun and warmth and other heart-gladdening flora, Oveja Negra is a pleasant surprise.

    A frankly weird blend of Sauvignon Blanc and the plump yet herbaceous red grape, Carmenère, it has an intensely, marvellously refreshing grapefruit-y core, with subtle mineral characteristics and a herbal touch from the Carmenère. A wine to put a spring in your step and a smile on your face.

  6. Pérez Cruz Carménère 2014 Chilean Wine

    Pérez Cruz Carménère 2014

    Now £15.50

    Was £16.50

    £15.50

    Carmenere is the forgotten one of the six Bordeaux grape varieties. But like an incredibly athletic and intrepid mole it has popped its head up in Chile. Here it produces some incredibly potent and complex reds like this one.

    Perez Cruz's Carménère is a riotous carnival of a wine, ripe black berry fruits mingle with more dried and baked fruit flavours and some lovely green herby notes. There's so much going on here it's impossible not to just get swept along with the party.
  7. Pérez Cruz Cot Red Wine Chile

    Pérez Cruz Cot 2015

    Now £15.50

    Was £16.50

    £15.50

    It is a lot to claim that one wine has the unmistakable character of Chile's Maipo valley. That's some pretty big talk. But we think that Viña Pérez Cruz can justify it with this 'Cot' or Malbec as it's known over here.

    Sourced from a blissfully-located vineyard that captures the warm afternoon sun rays, the cool mountainous breeze blowing down off the Andes, this black-fruited behemoth captures the essence of this unspoilt land. These people have bags of confidence in their wine, it's true, and rightly placed it is too.
  8. Secret de Viu Manent Carmenere Chile Wine

    Secret de Viu Manent Carmenere 2014

    £11.50

    £11.50

    If you've not yet come across a bad Carmenere then there's a very simple reason for this. There aren't many. This is partly attributable to the grape itself, but more to do with the country within which it's grown.

    Chile is this country and its perfect growing conditions for this grape make it virtually organic by default for starters. This is a guarantee of the full-bodied, smooth, satisfying type of red that Carmenere is so well known for.
  9. Terra Noble Carménère 2015

    Terra Noble Carmenere 2015

    £7.50

    £7.50

    A while ago, a French winemaker was visiting Chile's vineyards. Striding imperiously through the vineyards and inspecting some grapes he declared 'No you peasants, this is not Merlot'.

    It was an old Bordeaux red grape variety called Carménère. In fact, Chile had thus far been bottling this grape and labelling it as Merlot. The visitor strode off into the sunset feeling very smug indeed, but Chilean winemakers had the last laugh.

    Carménère is a beautiful wine in its own right. It's full bodied, jam packed with raspberry and chocolate flavours and slightly spicy on the finish. It's since become one of this nation's most successful red wines and now a signature grape variety.
