Viña Aquitania, Lazuli, Alto Maipo 2006
Star buy of 2015
Lovely and wild with ripe fruits, cigar box spice and roasted green pepper aromas. Full bodied and round with lovely tannins and elegant use of oak. A refreshing style with a ripe finish – very popular indeed!
Tasters: Peter Richards MW, Sarah Jane Evans MW, Xavier Rousset MS
Another classic example of Cabernet growing in Alto Maipo, this is a complex, elegant red. Its delicate net of tannins support layers of dry red fruit, spices and herbal notes. A touch of earthy flavours enhances its complexity. A very serious Cabernet for old-school Bordeaux lovers.
